Two E.B.S. members have been asked to reveal their personal choices for 
President of the United States, It should be emphasized that the views expressed are 
their own and dc not necessarily represent those of the editors or of the Edmund Burke 


If you or I were living in the United States, we would have an important decision 
to make in November - and that is for whom should we cast our vote for President. 

Let us consider first Vice-E^esident H.H. Humphrey. Humphrey, before he 
became vice-president under Johnson, had always been a strong socialist. He had 
been a president of A.D.A. - the socialistic organization in the United States, ^vhen 
he became Vice-President, he said that he agreed with Johnson, and people now con- 
sider him the hawk in the leadership race. But is he really a hawk? He has never 
admitted that he is more conservative than Ronald Reagan. I believe Humphrey is a 
dangerous, dishonest leftist,, and I think if he becomes President of the United States 
(and will not have lohnson over his head), he will show us again exactly where he 
stands and will pull troops out cf Vietnam in no time. Even Bill Moyers, President 
Johnson's former press secretary, was quoted as saying: "I think it is time Humphrey 
tells people where he really stands on Vietnam". As a conservative, I could never 
vote for Humphrey and I doubt if any conservative would. 

Now it bolls down to two - Nixon or V/allace. I could not vote for Vvallace be- 
cause of his racial policies. I am a conservative, an anti-communist, and a strong 
believer in the freedom of the Individual, and because of this I also believe in the 
freedom for the Negro. If the state builds a college or university, then I believe any- 
one who qualifies should be able to attend it, no matter what his colour is. However, 
I must add that vvallace has a very good candidate for Vice-President - General Curtis 
Le May. However, I would be willing to support Curtis Le ^.ay for President and 
Vvallace for Vice-President. \\/e must also take into consideration the fact that George 
"Vvallace is one of the most hated politicians in the U.S.A., and if, by some chance, he 
became the President of the United States, then I fear that within a short time the 
United States would have a civil war on its hands. Just like Wallace does not tolerate 
crime and communism, crime and communism will not tolerate George Vvallace. These 
same forces will try to overthrow him by violence as soon as possible. 

Therefore, by process of elimination, I come down to Richard Nixon. Even though 
Nixon has some shortcomings and I would prefer men like Barry Goldwater or General 
Curtis Le Niay, he still has fewer shortcomings than the other two candidates. 

During the Republican convention at N.iami Beach, we saw that three top Republic- 
an Conservatives supported Richard Nixon - Thurraona, Tower, and Goldwater, And if 
men like they are satisfied with Richard Nixon, and did not have to desert him and turn 
to Ronald Reagan, then I would be satisfied with Richard Nixon too. Nixon has the 
advantage of being a loyal Republican just like Barry Goldwater. One has never seen 
Nixon going against a fellow Republican. Richard Nixon endorsed Goldwater in 1964 
v/tthout a grudge, which is more than can be said for many other Republicans. Also, if 
Nexon becomes President, I am sure he will give good positions to many conser-'atives, 
because Nixon has found out that the right-wingers of the Party are friendly to him and 
that they believe in Party unity. He realizes that it is the liberals and the Rockefellers, 
Javlts, and Percys who are always disuniting the Party. VVe have already seen a good 
sign when Richard Nixon gave Strom Thurmond the power of the veto over the choice of 
Vice-President, so that none of Lindsay, Percy nor Hatfield get the job. Many of the 
eastern liberals were upset and called Spiro Agnew a racist. They did not call him a 
racist because he had expressed any racist feelings; in fact, few of them even knew 
him at all and called him a racist solely because Strom Thurmond and the South did not 
object to him . 

For these reasons, I feel Richard Nixon would be a better president than either 
Humphrey or Vvallace. 

- Armand Siksna. 

[■5 ' "' 






Let me make it clear from the beginning, I admire Richard Nixon as a courageous 
and intelligent politician. However, he impresses me the same way he impresses the 
mass-media label-makers: namely, as "Tricky Dick". In the 1960 political conven- 
tion he betrayed his political allies, the conservatives, and went hat-in-hand to that 
arch-spoiler and sometime Republican, Nelson Rockefeller, to infuse a conservative 
platform with emasculating liberalism. 

Nixon is too much of the politician for my liking. So far he has offered only 
vague ideas. He seems to have lost that outspoken clarity in his attitude to commun- 
ism. On November 20, 1967, Nixon admitted on Educational Television: "I oppose 
the invasion of North Vietnam...! oppose the declaration of war against North Vietnam 
...Our goal is solely... the same as we had in Korea." Yet, in a speech on January 
30, 1968, that great Senator from South Carolina, Strom Thurmond, remarked: "Vve did 
not win the war in Korea. V;e have a stalemate existing there, and that is the reason 
we are fighting the war now in South Vietnam . " 

The fact is that Nixon's nebulous and innocuous ducking of the issues, his 
watered-down anti-com.munism, and his unexplained promise to bring peace in Vietnam 
(by victory or by a sell-out?) create a credibility gap. Is the "new Nixon" different 
from the old anti-communist Congressman Nixon we so admired. This is the impress- 
ion Nixon is trying to give. 

Certainly, either the new or old Nixon would be infinitely preferable to Hubert 
Horatio Humphrey, whom Spiro Agnew has aptly accused of being "squishy soft on 
communism". But, this year the choice is not between the lesser of two evils. This 
time there is an unashamed champion of the conservative position - Governor George 
C. Vvallace. As his campaign literature urges "This time vote as you believe - vote 
Vvallace. " 

Autumn 1968 reveals America as a deeply troubled country. Three discouraging 
ills ravish the spirit of this great country. These are the problems that the next 
President and Congress must attack and conquer. In foreign policy the war in Vietnam 
is the poisoned thorn in America's side. For four years President Johnson has waged 
a no-win war. The alternatives are clear: either surrender and admit defeat or unleash 
the military, win the war, and get out. The second problem is the growing infringements 
and pretensions of the Federal government upon the rights of the individual. Finally, 
and perhaps the greatest problem, is the massive breakdown on law and order. Even 
more maddening is the official reaction to lawlessness. Courts coddle the criminal 
and explain away his wilful depravities by crying that he is "socially disadvantaged." 
The courts have treated rioters, looters, and arsonists with insane leniency. Very few 
of the Vvatts rioters received gaol sentences; few were inconvenienced by more than a 
$25.00 fine; student anarchists lead disruptive revolts and many administrators meekly 
give in. "Police brutality" and "over-reaction" become the liberal press' epithets any 
time the police attempt to enforce the laws. 

In my opinlon,of the Presidential candidates Vvallace best offers solutions to 
these three problems. Let's hear what George Vvallace proposes as he addresses 
himself to America's three biggest problems. 

The Vvar in Vietnam and Foreign Policy 

"I believe we need to achieve victory over Communism, Let the joint chiefs win 
the war in Vietnam. There is no substitute for Victory. Our servicemen are there and 
we must stand behind them 100 percent. Vie can de-escalate the war by escalating 
the bqjnblng of North Vietnam, I would hope that we would escalate the bombings of 
the supply routes and of the harbour facilities of North Vietnam to stop the flow of 
supplies from Chima and Russia into North Vietnam." 

About the Vietcong Vvallace astutely comments: "I believe if you defeat this 
Naitonal Liberation Front movement in Vietnam and show them they cannot take by force 
or subversion the government of South Vietnam, I think it would tend to discourage other 
National Liberation Front movements in other countries," 

Finally, "Wallace offers some good commonsense on a problem that affects 


mt I 



Canada too - foreign aid: "I'm sick of billions of dollars wasted in foreign countries 
when many of these countries ship materials to Vietnam to help kill American servicemen, 
I think you can cut several billion dollars off of foreign aid. I'm not against all foreign 
aid. For instance, Korea is a fine country that we give military aid to. They do a 
magnificent job, equipping eight soldiers for what it costs us to equip one. They are 
standing with us, and they are anti-communist. So that foreign aid to Korea is in the 
interest of our country. But, billions of dollars have gone to places like Yugoslavia 
and Ghana. We have to quit fpreign aid to anv nation that will not help us . I am tired 
of billions of dollars going to countries that spit in our face." 

Big Government 

"The U.S. is drifting headlong into government of the government, by the govern- 
ment, and for the government. 

The fundamental principles of our Constttutlon demand forceful and dedicated 
efforts to avoid the concentration of power and authority. Power and authority must 
not be concentrated in either the government or individuals. 

One of the problems in this country today is that it is being run by a non-elected 
branch of the Government, " 


Federal Control of Schools 

" Take the schools, as an example: It was never intended for the Federal Govern- 
ment to run the policies of local schools. Yet we find that they are now doing Just that, 

I believe the people on the local scene have the ability, the morality and the 
intelligence to decide the policies of the domestic democratic Institutions better than 
some fellow in a bureau in Vvashington can. 

Integration is a matter to be decided by each State, 
if they feel it is of benefit to both races . 

The States must determine 

I would think the schools, the matter of the. type of school system, should be 
left to the people of the States of California, Mississippi, New York and all the other 
States, ^/hatever kind of school system they wanted to have, they could have." 

wasteful Federal Spending 

"The Liberals' theory that poverty, discrimination and lack of opportunity is the 
cause of Communism is a false theory. If it were true, the South would have been the 
biggest single Communist bloc in the ^^estern Hemisphere long ago.' 

We just cannot continue to have higher taxes and more of these spending pro- 
grams that are an absolute waste and do not enhance the capital investment of our countr/. 

On the other hand, some of the so-called poverty programs are a complete waste. 
Just a few fat cats are now drawing big money in the poverty program, and as fear the 
folks it's supposed to help - it's not getting to them,' 

I'm for the elimination of poverty, but you've got to let the free enterprise system 
help eliminate poverty. You've got to have education. The free enterprise system pro- 
duces jobs and employment. And jobs themselves can do away with more poverty than 
all the agencies in the country, 

I'd cut out some of this so-called poverty program, which is a most useless 
expenditure of money. 

The United States Supreme Court legislates when it ought to be adjudicating. 

Because of rulings of the Supreme Court, if you walk out of here and are hit on 
the head, the criminal is out of jail before you are on your way to the hospital - or while 
the policeman is telling him his rights, he gets away. 

Law and Order 

" RIOTS Riots have come as a result of the militancy of anarchists, revolutionists, 
and Communists who do not love this country. There is no grievance by any group so 
great that it would call for the destruction of the internal security of our country and 
which could even endanger the external security. 


#•.... 1 

"If rioters knew they would get swift punishment, they would not throw a brick. 
The overtvhelming majority of both races is sick and tired of the tiny percentage of 
people who have brought about chaos. We found that people were rioting in the cities 
last year, not because they were poverty-stricken, but just because they wanted to riot. 
Some of them were making $7,500 a year in Detroit. This business of saying that we've 
got to provide all these programs to prevent a riot is apologizing for the riots. No 
apology need be made for these riots. There just ought to be condemnation. 

The first thing I would do as President is to make an announcement that Itlgive 
my moral support as President to the policemen. 

Civil Rights 

Everybody's for civil rights. Civil rights are freedom of speech, and the right 
of a jury trial, and the freedom of the press, freedom of religion. Civil rights are 
guaranteed to everybody in the Constitution. But the Civil Rights bill, in the name of 
civil rights, is trying to control people's property. And when you destroy property 
rights in this country, you hurt all the people, regardless of their race. Every citizen 
of this country, white or black, has a vested interest in the property ownership system." 

V/allace, then of the three candidates is most explicit in his programme to attack 
America's ills. And, finally, the gutter - assassins and trench-mouths of the liberal 
press, after dismissing Vvallace's campaign as "fascist", make big hay out of the 
charge that he is a racist. There are even a few usually clear-thinking conservatives 
who fall for this line. Wallace himself points out that a racist is one who believes 
one race is better than another. To recognize racial differences, though, is only to 
assert the obvious. "I believe that there is a Supreme Being, who made all mankind 
and He loves all mankind and I am not against anybody because of colour. I never 
have been." Alabama's Negroes refuted the liberal press when they gave his wife 
407c of the vote when she ran fc qovernor in 1967i 85% in Selma, Alabama.

**** *if.1,-k HI,** 

Dear Sir: 

Having only seen one number of the Edmund Burke Society's newsletter, I am 
probably rash in commenting on its general style. But when one considers the liberal 
wasteland that is Canadian public opinion, the appearance of a conservative journal is 
of such importance that I think it justifies 'instant analysis'. It goes without saying 
that I agree with the conservative substance of Straight Talk , which comes as manna in 
the liberal desert, but, at first sight, some of your expressions bother me. 

To get right to the point, why call socialists "gutless communists"? Such 
language is altogether too suggestive of the brutal totalitarian style. It needlessly 
offends many who migiit otherwise listen to our message. And it is just not true. At 
least not when applied to the body of intelligent socialists. And it is the intelligent 
socialists — I know quite a few — who are the source of so many of our problems, not 
because they are gutless anythings, but because they are all too brave and energetic. 

^Je on the Right, who are so tirelessly smeared by the fashionable and the thought- 
less, should be the first to practise the most rigid fairness in our public expressions. 
I know it is hard, when we see so much well-meaning blather actually furthering Commun- 
ist causes. But surely defence of civil discourse ought to come naturally to a group 
named for the man who said that European civilization was based on "the spirit of 
religion and the spirit of a gentleman". 

Exaggeration andinsult are not only unjust, they are frequently unsuccessful. How 
much harm has the American Right done itself through such heedless languagel Calling 
liberals socialists, and socialists Communists, makes it easy for our w^atchful enemies 
to caricature us out of our own mouths. By all means point out why liberals are suscept- 
ible to socialism, and how socialism is related to Communism. But don't smear even 
a fool by calling him a knave. There are fundamental differences between fools and 
knaves — just as there are between liberals and democratic socialists, and between the 
latter and totalitarian socialists. Lot us, for God's sake, keep such distinctions in 
mind, and avoid the enormities of groups like the John Birch Society, which wUliam F. 
Buckley has righdy declared to have uonc more harm to American conservatism than 
many a Left-wing organization ever did. 

mn i I I 

The Left wing is riding the tide of many years of public sympathy. They can 
afford to make mistakes . We cannot. Like Burke in 1790, we are bucking the tide - 
and it is a tide in which many of us are unwittingly implicated. In the ions, run, our 
most dangerous foes may not be organized Communist Parties with armies attached, but 
whI"*; f7\'.^" °'^ own society which are more subUe. more nebulous, and thus much 
harder to Identify and combat. Is the anarchist strain in the Left-wing demonstrators 
entirely unrelated to Right-wing individualism? What about the moral revolution which 
makes Left-wing defiance of authority more acceptable than it could have been ten years 
ago. What about our own equalitarian slogans which have created a mentality profoundly 
susceptible to collectlvist propaganda? 

And what about the different kinds of totalitarian collectivism? To speak of 
Reds does not help very much when Peking and ^IOscow Communists are at each 
others throats, and the Trotskyites hate them all. By all means avoid the liberal 
illusions about "mellowing" Communists, but do It without violence to the facts. I 
think we ought to be careful of idealizing Czech Communists these days, but there is 
obviously some difference between Alexander Dubcek and Leonid Brezhnev. I agree 
that the disunity among Communists may actually make them more dangerous, if only 
by blurring the lines of opposition to them. Nonetheless, the disunity must be under- 
stood -- and so must the growing fringe of extreme Leftists who are not Communist at 
an. ihey can be neither understood nor defeated by lumping them all together and 
shouting at the resultant hodgepodge. And I greaUy fear that Canadian opinion has been 
so conditioned by the liberal use of the cry of "McCarthylsm" that generalized accus- 
ations and wholesale denunciation will backfire even when they are justified -perhaps 
especially when they are justified. The liberals are old hands at finding our weaknesses , 
and diverting attention from their own. 

Allow me to close on a note of apology. There is something vaguely unsatis- 
factory about my criUcisms. They smack of the academic, snug in his ivory tower, 
giving patronizing advice to those out on the firing-line. It is so easy to talk thus, so 
hard to get out and fight, as you are fighting. Please remember, then, that I admit 
tms, and only mean to help you, who so richly deserve help. While many of us did 
wt 1"^ tu^T ""^'^ ^^^ darkness, you lit a candle. I am only suggesting ways in 
Which I think it may burn stronger and brighter. And to put my money where my mouth 
is, I enclose $2.00 for a subscription.

Editorial Reolv to Professor D^ly 

If there is any justification for calling socialists "gutless communists", it is 
because the socialists referred to are the social communists of the suburban or academic 
variety, who prefer to hide their communism under a nomenclature sanctified by middle 
class respectability. There is nothing wrong with "the brutal totalitarian style" as a 
literary style; what is fundamentally hypocritical is the abuse of this style to conceal 
ultimate totalitarian aims and objectives, and to deceive people about these. If we were 
to weigh every word from the point of view of whether or not someone might be offended 
we would never utter a single word. 

As Chairman Andrews wrote in our July-August issue, "if everything we do has to be 
measured against the probability of gaining widespread and evident sympaflay, then we 
would need a crystal ball. In fact, in such a case, we would have had no need to found 
the Society at all, but merely to blend into the liberal cone ilia tionist wallpaper. Then 
nnHH^n . ^^^ ^P^^^^' . We should also have remained isolated, ineffectual, and. . 
politically and morally neutre. . . " Similarly in the use of rhetoric, it is impossible to 
express radically critical ideas without ruffling someone's feathers . There are only two 
fo^r. ''^V, K "^. ^°^^°"^'^ ^^^' to be clear, accepting the inevitable consequence that 
someone will be "turned off", or one simply retreats into silence. We do not Intend to 
be silent, or to be silenced. 

V/hile we respect Edmund Curke's view of European civilization, even he, were he 
alive today, would not pretcnu that the mess we live in is characterized by "the spirit 




of religion and the spirit of a gentleman," vve have long since passed the possibility 
of confining the struggle to recover something of our basic civic and moral values to 
polite drawing rooms and pink teas. We live in a different age from that of Edmund 
Burke, the age of Stalin, Hitler, and IViao, the age of casual genocide and scientific 
hypocrisy, the age of Auschwitz and Vorkuta, of war, institutionalized brutality, and 
a rekindled cult of senseless violence which makes the French Revolution look like a 
mere costume pageant on the lawns of Versailles. Trotsky is once supposed to have 
said that anyone who wants peace and quiet should have arranged to have been born 
in some other century. We were born in this one, with all its godless cruelty, and 
must fight our struggle realistically, without illusions re the terms of that struggle 
imposed upon us by the enemy. V/e might wish it were otherwise; we must face up 
to the fact that it is not. Those of us who faced the enemy at the American Consulate 
last April looked into the face of scientific barbarism. VVe confronted a fanaticism 
so irrational that even rational language seems of no use; these people are beyond 
reason, and beyond persuasion. They have chosen to abdicate their reason in their 
romantic surrender to the dark forces of anarcho-socialism. Are we to surrender to 
them in the delusion that we must be perfect little gentlemen, while they herd us into 
their concentration camps and gas chambers? Was Professor Daly equally concerned 
about "the most rigid fairness in our public expressions" when we ware fighting the 
Nazis in Vi/brld Vv'ar II? Vve are at war now, and the enemy we face makes the Nazis 
look like so many Vienna Choir Boys. 

We do not set out to "insJilt" anyone, not even our enemies, but to expose them 
for what they are, either knaves, or fools, or both. There is a point when folly ceases 
to be forgivable and becomes the most criminal knavery. Liberals, obviously, are 
not socialists, but many socialists retain their liberal labels and pretensions long 
after they have ceased to be liberal in any recognizable sense of the term. (Look at 
our "Liberal" Party, which, through the mouth of Pauline Jewett, in 1963, announced 
that it was "prepared to accept... a collectivist society..."). 

Vve also believe that, ultimately, socialism "is related to Communism" in the 
same way that totalitarianism is related to Njarxism: in short, they are essentially 
synonymous. The Marxists of the Communist Party are merely logical Leninists, who 
see their Prussian principles through to their logical consequences. The distinction 
Professor Daly wishes to make between "democratic" socialists and "totalitarian" 
socialists is more apparent than real, more accidental than substantial, more a 
matter of methodo logy than ultimate objectives . In Russia, Lenin sired the Commun- 
ist Party out of the old Social Democrat Party's Bolshevik wing, but what did this 
prove, but that Lenin and Trotsky had the realism to see that the Ivjensheviks 
("democratic socialists") w^e the "gutless communists" of that time and place, 
afraid to pursue their fundamental principles to their inevitable and logical Commun- 
ist conclusion? \v'ould Russia's revolutionary aspirations for a democratic and 
constitutional government in an economically free society have been any the less 
dead had they been legally emasculated by a Parliament of IVjenshevik gentlemen, 
rather than strangled by the "Bolshevik firmness" of Lenin and Stalin? Similarly, we 
are witnessing our own economic freedom and responsible government being eroded 
more and more with the months that pass by an establishment of gray flannel Fabians 
(even Trudeau shaved his beard so as not to frighten us too much) whose long-range 
aims do not differ, fundamentally, from those of the avowed authoritarians (Prof. 
Daly's "totalitarian socialists"). Distinctions, surely, are important, and we 
would bo the last to want to blur any essential distinctions; however, we cannot 
allow accidental differences of strategy, technique, or methodology to obscure our 
clear recognition of a substantial Identity. Vve must call a spade a spade, notwith- 
standing that the one might be the spade of hearts and the other the spade of diamonds. 

If "Left-wing defiance of authority" in the democracies is more "acceptable" now 
than it was ten years ago, it remains highly questionable to attribute this to a "moral 
revolution" . A true moral revolution would have a<c<aded off what is now seen to be a 
considerable decline and erosion of moral consciousness in general. Our inability, 
collectively, to respond with normal defensive fuilcj'. against the excesses of anarcho- 
statlsm suggests almost a collective death wish in a decadent liberal society, which, 
combined with a vague and ill-defined sense of collective guilt and failure, has pro- 
duced in that society what Prof. Daly calls "a mentality profoundly susceptible to 
collectivist propaganda".

"Vve must not go to war against Communism." 


The following is the full text of a letter which appeared in slightly edited form in the 
Globe & Mail. August 15, 1968. 

Dear Sfr: 

As one of the few moderates on the Students' Administrative Council at the 
University of Toronto, I very much appreciated your perceptive editorial on Monday, 
August 12th. 

I would like, if I may, to add a little background information which may aid 
your readers in better understanding the sorry state of student government at the 
University of Toronto. 

Ffrstly, the majority on S.A.C. want radical change at the university, yet 
most students, at least in my constituency of St. Michael's College, approve 
limited and moderate reforms in the make up of courses and in examinations. How- 
ever, the majority on S.A.C. seek not to make the university more efficient, but to 
shake it to its very roots; to alter its structure, and, eventually, to dictate to the 
administration. These radical leaders subscribe to what S.A.C. Rep. from Univer- 
sity College, Bob Rae, admits is a "quasi-Marxist interpretation of a class struggle 
in the university." This radical majority holds that there is a vast conspiracy by 
corporations, most of which are controlled by U.S. "imperialists". These ccarpor- 
atlons control and oppress our society and dehumanize the students at the univers- 
ity, so these radicals believe. 

This radical majority on S.A.C. believe with Vice-President Norman Schachar 
that "this council (should) take a revolutionary view of the problems facing the 
students of this university." Their ultimate aim is complete student control of the 
university. The radicals believe that they can only overthrow the corrupt "neo- 
capitalist" structure of society by beginning with that society's educator - the 

Make no mistake, what the extremists on S.A.C. want is not more say but 
complete control; not reform but revolution. At one point in last Saturday's debate, 
Wayne Hankey, a Rep. of the Graduate Students, addressed himself to the question 
"is Bissell employable after the Revolution." Although few on S.A.C. openly 
advocate a violent revolution, the threat lurks none too subtly beneath the surface. 
Indeed, Bob Rae allowed that accepting seats on the President's Council "would not 
compromise our drive for revolution as would accepting seats on the Senate." He 
went on to add: "If I'm talking to Claude Bissell there is no reason why students 
can't be occupying Simcoe Hall or doing whatever revolutionary thing they like." 

After seeing clearly the aims of the extremists who control S.A.C. , it is 
essential to see that they are, by nature, elitist and anti-democratic and do not 
represent the majority of students . That is why, as your correspondent reported, 
they laughed down my challenge that they conduct an opinion poll to find out what 
thefr constituents really think. The radical majority regard their constituents with 
ill-disguised contempt. Mr. Wernick called the "majcarlty of students" "robots" 
and another Rep. maintained that my election was an indication of student apathy. 

Knowing that they don't reflect popular feeling, the S.A.C. majority hopes 
to dupe its constituents and to "politicize" them by "confrontations" with the 

The anti-democratic nature of S.A.C. became evident when S.A.C. Reps, 
hooted down a suggestion that a referendum be held on our membership in the 
Ontario Union of Students. At present, each student is compelled to be a member 
of O. U.S. and to contribute a yearly levy. O.U.S. organized the disruption of 
Stanfield's rally at the Coliseum. The Vice-President of O.U.S. , Xen Stone, who 
earlier this year ripped up his diploma, presented a two page brief at the weekend 
S.A.C. meeting* This brief from one of our supposed reptesesentatives was so full 
of obscenities as to disgrace the student body, no matter how permissive they maybe. 




S.A.C.'s elitist attitude was made quite explicit when they voted down my 
proposal that our representatives on the President's Council be elected by the students 
rather than appointed by S.A.C. Andy Vvernick scorned the idea of an elefction: 
""VVe won't get seven Reps who'll want to do what we want to do; we won't get seven 
radicals." Mr. Schachar summed up the arrogance of the elitists on S.A.C. when 
he warned: "I would not personally be in favour of putting students on the Presid- 
ent's advisory council, if they are representing the opinion of the majority of 

It may well be that the only hope left for the vast majority of moderate 

students is for the administration to take 

a firm stand against our radical mis-

The Edmund Burke Society is fighting student radicalism this fall, in 
struggles both on and off campus. "VVe hope to keep the press informed of the 
intentions of the revolutionaries and to inform our fellow students of the plot by the 
S.A.C. Radicals to make them pliant dupes in the services of a revolutionary phil- 
osophy which seeks to bring chaos to the university and disruption and anarchy to 

You would not believe how radical this moron majority really is . They wish 
to lash out at a "corporate" and "technocratic" conspiracy that they imagine is 
oppressing, dehumanizing, and subjugating them at all levels; yet, they have no 
idea where they are going. Indeed, /^dy Vi/ernick admitted peevishly: "I wouldn't 
even try saying what I want in a society." 

Half-way through the debate on whether or not to accept the seats on 
President Bissell's Council, ^yndy Wernick rose to deliver what I knew would be his 
definitive statement of what the ultra-revolutionaries had in mind. I proceeded to 
tape his speech. Although my small tape recorder was concealed beneath some 
papers, I held the microphone up publicly in his direction. As people became 
aware that I was taping his talk there was a chain reaction of worried glances and 
whispers around the table. The E*resident was informed by an agitated rep. who 
ran up and whispered in his ear. In the end one rep. could stand it no longer; he 
leaped up and warned V/emick: "Andy you should know that Fromm is taping your 

Th^eupon, ensued one of the most anti-democratic and hypocritical tech- 
niques I have ever seen S.A.C. employ. As you know, in dealings with the admin- 
istration and on any student-faculty commissions that it sits on, S.A.C. never 
ceases to bray for complete "openness". This "openness", we had been told 
earlier (if operative on Bissell's Council), would have a "politicizing" effect and 
would be "revealing in a dramatic way" detailed Information about how the univers- 
ity is really run — "useful" information on the informed power structure. But as 
with so many things on S.A.C, preaching is one thing, practice another; they 
quickly adopted a motion to order me to erase the tape and to remove the tape re- 
corder. I vainly argued that it was first my democratic freedom as a student to 
record the recordings of my findings for the elected body and Beccndly as a rep. from 
St. Michael's College, who, unlike most of them, believed in representing his 
constituents it was my right to let my constituents hear exactly what the opinions 
of S.A.C. were. Andy "VVernick screamed that he didn't want me using the tape for 
any political pvirposes in the "fascist groups" I am associated with. Someone else 
feared tliat I would pass the tape on to Flesherton - to Ron Gostick of the Canadian 
Information Service. They know of Gostick and fear him, I am glad to say. I gave 
the tape recorder to ovir Society's treasurer, Mr. Joseph Genovese, who was in the 


audience. After the mofnlng session ended many reps, came jumping around Joe 
and I, half beside themselves, to make certain we destroyed the tape. As it turned 
out, the tape recorder was not working anyway so we destroyed nothing of value. 

In passing, I cannot help but record what Alberto di Giovanni, a perpetual 
disgrace and mis-representative of St, Michael's College, had to say, "I still feel 
I can be a good Christian and a good REVOLUTIONARY," S.A.C's theory of educat- 
ion, such as can be gleaned by negative outbursts, is one of utterly permissive, 
undisciplined, un-structured freedom of choice and expression. After I had con- 
fronted President Langdon with three embarrassing questions, Wayne Hankey a rep, 
from the Graduate Students leaped up to threaten me with censure if I did not stop 
"harassing and making wild charges" (which were not wild). Most of my speeches 
were interrupted by hoots, boos, and heckling. 

The three questions with which I embarrassed Mr. Langdon centered around 
his support of the student revolt at Simon Fraser University. In a letter dated 
July 23, 1968, Mr. Langdon wrote, and I quote the letter in its entirety. The letter 
is to Mr. Hovvcard Hormatz, Treasurer of the Simon Fraser Student Council. 




Steven Langdon, President. 

This in my opinion was a flagrant betrayal of his duty as President. He was, 
in effect, acting on behalf of 20,000 students and speaking without their knowledge 
or approval. He was lying. I am certain that few U. of T. students support these 
shananigans at S.F.U. or were willing to subsidize them. 

Back in July, Mr. Jaanus Proos, our U. of T. Branch Secretary reported that 
during the froubles at S.F.U. the student council had received a telegram of sym- 
pathy and endorsement signed by Steven Langdon on behalf of the students of the 
University of Toronto. My research into S..-1.C. correspondence reveals the follow- 
ing very informative telegram from the Canadian Union of Students (C.U.S,), 
C.U.S. is active in co-ordinating cross-canada campus troublemaking . 

Ottawa, Ontario 

1968 May 30 7:00 P.M, 

URGENT.' Students at Simon Fraser University have openly declared 
support for the action taken by the Canadian Association of University 
Teachers in black-balling the University. A vote is now being taken 
by the students to see whether or not they will be going on strike to 
demand the democratization of the University. Among the demands is 
the abolishment of the Board of Governors, By all accounts it looks as 
if they will be striking. The Canadian Union of Students is calling on 
all members unions to send telegrams and phone messages of solidarity 
with the students at S.F,U. Messages should be sent as soon as possible, 


Langdon meekly obeyed the puppeteers on C.U.S, 

It seems clear to me, given the stated radical aims of C.U.S., (they 
endcvsed the Viet Cong at their annual conference at Guelph this August), that if 
they did not in fact aid in fomenting the dlsttirbances at S.F.U., they evidently 
did" do ev«ything possible to encourage the troubles. In the process they collected 
endorsements, which, while highly encouraging to the radical leaders at S.F.U., 
are a flagrant misrepresentation of student opinion and a cruel dis-service to the 
student's C.U.S. it is supposedly serving. 


■i^iii ( 




In these times of scarce summer jobs it seems proper to me that students 
should be "image" conscious. Instead, far from putting our best foot forward many 
of our leaders on S.A.C., CU. S. and O.U.S. are representative of nothing but the 
lunatic left. Instead of sending responsible students who reflect a consensus of 
the university community as representatives, the students have been fooled by 
dishonest election campaigns into sending the village idiots to drag our "image" 
through the mud. 


F. Paul Fromm. 
*** *** *** 


It has consistently been the claim of both your Edmund Burke Society and of 
Mr. Proos and myself, who are elected representatives of the Students' Administrat- 
ive Council at the University of Toronto, that the vast majority of students is 
totally opposed to a student revolution. Moreover, as a representative of St. 
Michael's College, I have insisted that my constituents in overwhelming numbers 
want no part of the radical socialist view of the majority on S.A.C. who believe that 
there exists a corporate conspiracy which oppresses and dehumanizes both society 
and the students . 

Vindication of my point of view and of your society's came in a letter which 
one of my constituents at St. Michael's College felt sufficiently concerned to write 
me. This student, who lives in a small town in southern Ontario writes , in part; 

"I hope that law and order shall be a conservative platform, strongly upheld 
In '68 - '69. I've worked very hard this summer at a job that I Immensely dislike 
to make enough money to increase my education without much burden on any other 
family members . I do not Intend to allow any minority of anarchists or socialists 
to tell me that I have the right to 'control' my education. If that was so, I'd be 
getting paid by instead of paying the administration. And, since I have no admin- 
istrative experience or degree, why should I or any other advocates of radical 
student power, have the right to force the administration to look at me as their equal? 
Since I worked in the summers to make money and in the winters to make grades, 
which gave me the right to further my education, I do not want to see the doors to 
my classrooms locked this year for 'my interests'. Who do the S.A.C. radicals 
think they are kidding? "

In my previous column, I reviewed the course of oior extraordinary federal 
election campaign up to the first week of June. The cynical obfuscation which 
characterized this campaign continued: gut issues were avoided, Pierre-Elliott 
Trudeau ("Where is Biafra? ") continued to kiss young girls in shopping plazas, 
and Robert Stanfield ("I really dont enjoy criticizing the Liberal Government") went 
on projecting his image as a national friendly local undertaker. If anything, the 
political fog thickened, 


On June 12th, Trudeau was interviewed by John Bassett. publisher of the 
TELEGRAM, ("Russia is moving our way, just as we're moving theirs, slowly but 
inexorably") on the CTV Network. The next day, TELEGRAM T.V. columnist Bob 
Blackbjjjjj^ reported that "They didn't go into issues, but rather Bassett tried to 
bring out some of the essential Trudeau - his philosophy and approach to politics 
and public life, his feelings about the office he holds, and interestingly, his 
thoughts about campaign promises , Trudeau himself suggested there was no point 
in talking about what a Liberal government would do in hypothetical situations, 
since no one could fcaretell what contingencies were in store. . . " (Would Trudeau 
have done so well at the polls if he had announced that he intended to cancel the 
winter wcrks program?) Blackburn showed where Bassett's heart was when he 
reported that it was "a pretty sympathetic line of questioning, and Trudeau made 
the best of It, It could only do him good,,," It sure did. 



t* ""^ .^tf u 

In his column for June 14th. Lubor Zink felt that Trudeau would end up with 
140 seats. He also pointed out that at this stage, Trudeau could wear any label, 
or even just quote the telephone directory, and it would make no difference to the 
mesmerized zombie following he had acquired. "To this emotionally-committed 
following", he wrote, "the PM's issues and ever changing Images mean nothing. 
Trudeau is their idol and that's that. . .they have an unbounded faith in some unde- 
fined supernatural powers of their messlah who knows what's good for the country 
and the world and who, as far as they are concerned, can do no wrong, . , " 


On June 18th, his fellow TELEGRAM columnist Dennis Braithwaite wrote, 
"There is a clear choice this time, not so much of Issues - especially since the 
Tories have jiunped on Trudeau' s one nation bandwagon - but of personalities, images, 
attitudes, styles." This was the day that Trudeau, in the words of GLOBE & MAIL 
reporter j^nthony Westell , told a "screaming crowd" in Calgary "what the Liberals 
thought they wanted to hear". He struck an "individualist" note in his remarks, 
considered appropriate to the rugged, pioneer climate of the West, while at the same 
time repudiating laissez-faire (free enterprise), "I have only one label", he said, 
"and it's Liberal. I don't like labels, but Liberal is the only one I have." But 
laissez-faire Is the very definition of liberalism; Trudeau's "liberalism", then, 
according to his own admission, is only a label, without substance or truth. 

However, to say as much at the time was to lay oneself open to charges of "hate- 
mongering" in the climate of hysteria which had been whipped up by the commercial 

The next day (June 19th), Peter Regenstreif spelled it out quite bluntly in the 
DAILY STAR; "The cult of personality has gripped the Canadian electorate. A 
national survey reveals that Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau is bv far the most 
important reason people give for voting Liberal Tune 25th.. , Program or policy is 
referred to by 7 per cent (of those polled) while the local candidate is a factor to 
6 per cent. . ." 

On June 20th, Zink referred to Trudeau's invitation to the electorate to take 
a fling with him as "collective Russian roulette", since he was not specific on any 
Issue. "Trudeau's campaigning style", he wrote, "relies heavily on charismatic 
personality appeal which makes it unnecessary for him to depart from vague general- 
ities, meaningless platitudes, and rigidity.. .The result is that he is in fact camp- 
aigning for a blank mandate." David Hoffman of the Political Science Department 
of York University pointed out that Trudeau, "Vvorried about Conservative charges 
that he is a radical (or even a socialist) . . .is bending over backwards to appear 
extremely conservative on economic issues." (Cf. DAILY STAR). 

The next day, Zink referred to the contest in styles of the two leaders which 
had replaced rational debate on serious matters, and characterized it as "a very 
superficial and, to my mind,, .irresponsible, approach to the task of selecting our

TELEGRAM staff man, Gary Oakes . who followed the Trudeau entourage (and 
who has recently co-authored a book entitled TRUDEAU: THE MiAN FOR TOMORROV/) 
reported in that paper on June 22nd that "In truth, there appears to be little basic 
difference between the policies of Flower Power (Trudeau) and Big Thunder 
(Stanfleld). V/here Mr. Trudeau might say no, Iv/ir. Stanfield would do the more 
politically acceptable thing and say we'll consider it. But the result will be tlie 
same - it won't be done. . .Unquestionably, the sometimes insane response to Mr. 
Trudeau is provoked largely by a sexual thing. . ." The "Insane response" seemed 
to come largely from juvenile elements, rather like those who have been raping main- 
land China in Red Guard terror formations for the last three years, and these did not 
go unappreciated by the Trudeau Gang. On this same day, Peter Thomson of the 
TELEGRAM] 's Ottawa Bureau quoted an unnamed Trudeau "aide" to the effect that 
"V/e're going to lower the voting age to 12 and sweep the country.'" 

On June 24th, Lubor Zink aptly described the Trudeau technique: "The trick 
is to whip up an emotional atmosphere of hero worship, a cult of personality in which 
reasoning ceases to be a factor. The aim of this abstract art of political salesman- 
ship is to create a sort of snowballing mass hysteria in which the superhuman Image 
of the chosen idol becomes the all-encompassing message, even though no one can 
explain why or what the message means. . . .The formula, tried and tested initially 
in fostering mass mania for commercially promising entertainers, is almost foolproof',' 
This was the week in which Robert Kaplan. Trudeaucrat candidate in Don Valley who 
trounced Dalton Camp , (he originally met Trudeau in Vvest Africa at some "seminars" 
sponsored by the Ford Foundation , and has recently been appointed as a parliamentay 
delegate to the United Nations) told an all-candidates meeting that the best way to 
deal with welfare cases is to "amend the criminal code and get the police after them" 
(but not in their bedrooms, presumably). On this same day (June 24th), Fisher & 
Crowe published a column based on thefr Interview with Mr, Camp and record his 
dismal view of our "national non-debate" characterized by a "disengagement" from 
the issues, the record, and indeed, from reality. He described the Trudeau Juven- 
ocrats as being involved "vicariously, peripherally, and emotionally. . .the politics 
of the Trudeau youth has already become the politics of the claque. They do not 
attend meetings to listen and learn, but to impose thefr will upon the process. 
Attempts at meetings by Mrs. Murray (New Democratic can didate in Don Vallev) to 
raise yeal problems of persons on fixed incomes were drowned out bv hoots of 
derision from them . . . politics has always been rough, but suddenly it has become 


% "i 

J i m yw i W Di iiiii .!l i uwj. ii 



callous. One is forcibly struck by the non-concern, the non-compassion of those 
who bring Mr. Trudeau's non-debate home to the constituency level." Fisher & 
Crowe comment that "It is suddenly as though we didn't need a parliament or a 
government, or a set of policies. Leadership, crowdsrnanship, and faith will suffice. 
JVJr. Camp is convinced that a mandate secured in these circumstances would be 
'annressively ini*C;-:i-)le and reactionary. It would be a government suspicious of 
modoi'ation.'" , 

Then came the fatal day, June 25th, Zink's column dealt with the Marxist 
menace, MiV' .^I'^Sv- -'...v/'s speech of May 5th heralding the new "decisive 
stage of the struo^ia 6gaJ.,3t the monopoly bourgeoisie", i.e., against the demo- 
cracies. "His main emphasis", said Zink, "is on what he calls 'the struggle for 
democratic reforms' such as the new slogan of participatory democracy, struggle for 
peace and economic independence. (We have heard all these slogans in our 
election campaign)." Indeed, we did, but God help anyone who dared to suggest 
that they were phoney Soviet slogans, even if they did issue forth out of the mouths 
of venal Trudeaucrats and Torytarians, 

The next day, Zink warned soberly that "In the final analysis a free people 
invariably gets tlie government it deserves and has to learn from the mistakes it 
makes"; one thoughf bitterly of the hard lessons the Germans and the Italians had 
to learn after their "mistakes". Mr. Trudeau has no record to speak of as a practis- 
ing politician, " Zink went on, "and none as an administrator. Nor has he present- 
ed a coherent program during his election campaign. His success so far stems from 
the peculiar combination of irrational hero worship and general ignorance of his 
political philosophy." 


' On June 27th Zink reflected that Trudeau "managed to appeal to both the 

'left-wing' vote with lures of radical changes in foreign policy and hints of unspeci- 
fied domestic 'new directions', and to tlie business community with carrots of 
economic and fiscal conservatism." On the same day, John D. Harbron , associate 
editor of the TELEGRAM, as one of "those... who have known the Prime Minister for 
many years", essayed a little solemn prognostication indicating somewhat the 
orientation of these "new directions" which Trudeau called the "Just Society", and 
it was scarcely reassuring. "I suggest," he wrote, "Pierre Trudeau, Prime Minister, 
will be tough, selfless, at times even ruthless and capable of changing long years 
of intellectual assessment into future years of policy. He will invite the many 
who have shared ideas with him over the years to advise on governing. He will 
govern alone... His sophisticated critics will fear more than ever before that this 
man might impose his own system of philosophy and order on an imperfect community'.'. 
You'd better believe it. . . "He will govern alone" . Since the election, Trudeau has 
appointed an extraordinarily large executive staff (all on government payroll, of 
course) described in a recent issue of VvEEKEND MAGAZINE as "an all-important 
battalion of bright business brains. . .perhaps the strongest, youngest group ever to 
accompany a prime minister into office." They include Gordon Gibson (educated at 
U.B.C., Harvard, and the London School of Economics), Tim Porteous , former gag- 
writer and now speechwriter (will he improve Pierre's corny jokes?), and Jim Davev, 
British-born computer expert. 

VvTien Trudeau announced his Cabinet line-up, Donald Macdonald (The people 
behind this hate literature are diseased") was appointed Government leader in the 
House of Commons. "V/hen the Prime Minister says he is going to fashion a new 
kind of executive instrument", commented Fisher & Crowe on July 8, "and a much 
more efficient Parliament, we take him seriously and Mr, Macdonald's role suggests 
that all the determination of a bludgeon swing by a powerful majority is going into 
the reforms. It's questionable whether the opposition has the skills and will to 
obstruct or tone down the objectives of the Prime Minister. . . .the whole Government 
process,, .will seem and may be more efficient and incisive and business-like." 
On the same day Zink reminded us that Trudeau had gained his victory with less than 
half of the electorate voting for him, and suggested that his new Cabinet "pramises 
to produce a very efficient government, virtually untouchable by the opposition 
parties . " Business-like efficiency, unhampered bv "obstruction" from an oppos- 
itl oo. is after all, the whole point of dictatorship, even if it is described as "a new of executive instrument" . 

"^•w '^l^ 


A few days later, Trudeau announced his strict rule of Cabinet solidarity and 
secrecy in terms which, again reveal the workings of the trudeau mind He has an 
absolute genius for expressing things which are normally taken ^^^ granted ^ a 
Lnner which suggests the ominous midnight knock on the door and a long tirip^to 
Siberia "Vv'hat the rules laid down by the prime minister seem to amount to, 
commented Zink on July 11th, "is such a centralization of both poliUcal and admin- 
rrrt^ve infomation under his direct control that only the totalitarian regimes seem 
o out-do the emerging set-up in Ottawa. . . A system of officia i"/°-^"°" J^^f ^ 
that is ultimately controlled by one man, no matter how good ^'^^ '^^^^^ ^^'^""^^^l^^,, 
of the scheme may be, poses a mortal threat to a free society. I hope that the press 
and the opposiSon parties, as well as the public at large, will recognize the danger 
and do theS: u most to nip it in the bud." On this same day, Fisher & Crowe rumin- 
ated that they may have begun the pro-Trudeau press build-up last year, citing a 
column of thJirs of April 1967 in which they characterized Trudeau as "a kind of 
oneTan Rat Pack" and quoting one of his then Cabinet colleagues to the effect that 
"Pierre's secret is his invincible arrogance, as a style and m rnethod of debate He 
endTup dominating every discussion that rises above chitchat. " In the LiberaL 
SSTof coise, that m^- not be such a great achievement, but the point is well 
taken, nevertheless. 

On the next day, July 12th, they twit the GLOBE & UAJL's ^"^'^^"V Westell , 
"one of the ablest Trudolators who has emerged in recent months f°^his dismay 
over Trudeau's strict con-ol of Cabinet secrecy. They quote Westell s sob Piece 
inThe GLOBE of the previous day. in which he said that "Uneasiness arises from 
scraps of knowledge about his philosophy and his ^PProach to communication 
between the Government and the public . " Fisher & Crowe interpret: In other 
woX we're not really sure about this man. Well, Anthony, ^^^^'^Jf J^^^^^^f ""' 
of the new era and the just society. . .We have suspected for some time thatj^r 
?rudeau hasn't much patience with Parliament and we take seriously his determm- 
ation to reform it drastically." 


At this point, however, it was too late to cry the blues Even a Trud^^^^^^^^^ 
may repent of his sins, one supposes, and get on the right side o the barricades , 
anyone cares to trust such a jackass . However, the Profession.! oh^^^^ o^ 
Messrs Fisher & Crowe restrains them from revealing the name of the Trudeau 
Irshiplng ournalist who wrote the ultimate line of copy deifying Trudeau which

During the trial of Adolf Elchmann , much was made of the lack of "civic 
courage" in Germany in the face of National Socialist despotism. Will future gener- 
ations curse us for our cult of softness and civic cowardice, which are paving the 
way for Fabianism? Only time will tell, 



"Moscow - (AP) (Sept. 27, 1968) - Pravda, the Soviet Communist 
party newspaper says no Communist government has the right to take 
decisions fhat would 'harm socialism in its own country or the vital 
interests of other socialist countries'... It declares that Communist 
governments can apnly the basic principles of Marxism-Leninism as 
they see fit, but cannot depart from those principles . " 

"He (Trudeau) said the Government could not (fly food directly 
into Biafra) because it would be construed as a hostile act against 
a friendly government - namely Nigeria.. .The Prime Minister 
repeated that the Canadian Government had helped the Red Cross 
and at one point offered planesto the Red Cross. . .But the Govern- 
ment stops when it comes to doing an unfriendly deed against a 
friendly government. . . "

in TELEGRAM, Sept. 27, 1968.

the Chinese Government, of course... 




"The difference is we are all appeasers now. In a pinch 
we put our hides before principles. There seems to be no 
other way in the nuclear age." 

- Dennis Braithwaite, Aug. 22, 1968. 

Last August 1st, Richard Ni^con. Republican candidate for the American 
Presidency, effectively turned his back on the anti-Communist struggle when he told 
the Republican platform Committee that "The war must be ended. . .we must seek a 
negotiated settlement," A week later (August 6) he told a news conference in Miami 
that the Communist world had itself shifted in new directions and that whoever 
becomes the new President "must proceed on the assumption that negotiations with 
the leaders of the Soviet world, negotiations eventually with the leaders of the next 
superpower. Communist China, must take place. This is a change that has come 
about and therefore your policy must change... As the facts change, any intelligent 
man does change his approaches to the problems. It does not mean that he is an 
oppcatunist. It means only that he is a pragmatist." Pierre- Elliott Trudeau could 
not have put it better. But have the facts of Red imperialism changed? On the very 
next day (August 7th) , Edward Crankshaw published a piece for the London Observer 
Service in which he pointed out that "The Russian leaders, or most of them, have 
shown themselves as what they are: not only brutes, but stupid tarutes. If they do 
not swamp Czechoslovakia with troops, it is only because they are afraid. . .Further, 
the Russians have revealed finally that they themselves know that their system is 
incapable of development . It is a political dinosaur. It can be maintained only by 
force wielded by a dictatorial clique. . .The Soviet hard-liners are right. It is not

h s way in the TWIN CIRCLE for Sept. 1st: "Father Lyons had accused Aptheker of 
lying whenever it suited him, following Lenin's dictum that in such cases 'lying is 
a higher form of truth. ' Aptheker denied Lenin said that, and Father pointed out: 
You are lying now'. Aptheker replied: 'You are not very Christian.'. . .Aptheker 
lost ground from the start, and continued to do so throughout the three-hour T.V. 
debate. After two hours, the program was Interrupted to announce the invasion of 
Czechoslovakia. Fr. Lyons asked Dr. Aptheker to comment, but he had no comment 
to make. . . Zecha quotes Fr. Lyons as saying "I believe in dialogue with people 
who suffer under Communism, not with the leaders of the Party like yourself. You 
^?nHc °^^^^^^°^^' You are the exploiters, you are opportunists, and have closed 
minds. ..You are the ones who do not believe in dialogue." Zecha comments that 

mere was no reply ' . Fr. Lyons concluded that "Communism is counter-revolution- 
ary. It is the Establishment. It is opposed to freedom and progress." 






"All strokes slip on the smoothness of a polished wall. Ail blows 
fall soundless on the softness of a padded cell. For madness is a 
passive as well as an active state: it is a paralysis, a refusal of 
the nerves to respond to the normal stimuli, as well as an unnatural 
stimulation. There are commonwealths, plainly to be distinguished 
here and there in history, v\rfiich pass from prosperity to squalor, or 
from glory to insignificance, or from freedom to slavery, not only in 
silence, but with serenity. The face still smiles while the limbs, 
literally and loathsomely, are dropping from the body. These are 
people that have lost the power of astonishment at thefr own actions. 
V/hen they give birth to a fantastic fashion or a foolish law, they do 
not start or stare at the monster they have brought forth. They have 
grown usecj to thefr qytn unreason; chaos is thefr cosmos; and the 
whfrlwlnd is the breath of thefr nostrils. These nations are really 
in danger of going off thefr heads, en masse: of becoming one vast 
vision of imbecility, with toppling cities and country-sides, all 
dotted with indusfrlous lunatics . "

On October 27th, a contingent from the Canadian Friends of Blafra (An E.B.S. 
Affiliate) attended the Nigerian meeting In Nathan Philips Square. The Nigerians, 
the overwhelming luajorl^y of whom were public-subsidized students at Cane —xan 
universities, were ou* to publicize and support the communist-backed Lagos war of 
genocide against the Ibo Biafrans . 

This was a hastily arranged leaflet campaign on our part, and we were'nt out 
to pull any punches. . .o^r loaflet was entlUed "NIGERIAN RACISTS RAPE BIAFRA", and 
stated our position most clearly. The main points were as follows :- 

(a) The Nigerian democratic institutions were destroyed by the military coup of 
1966; this was largely responsible for the Biafran Secession, 

(b) The Ibos had,, by that tijne, spread over most of Nigeria .,. their superior 
education and wU. :.i gness tc .. :rk had led to their occupying many of the more 
responsible positions in Government and business, 

(c) The religious problems: Christian Ibos, and Moslem Hausas, 

(d) Communist opportunism; eagerness to take advantage of the situation. 

(e) Official Canada's cynical attitude of feigned helplessness, and heartless 
indifference to the starvation and suffering of the Biafran people. 

The Nigerian students soon proved themselves to be very nearly as militaristic 
as their compatriots in Lagos; we were soon surrounded by droves of anguished 
Nigerians, who accused us of being there "to cause violence" (all four of us I) The 
police rapidly arrived on the scene, having been surrounded by a fellow who was 
under the impression tiiat the Nigerians had hired the entire square, not just the 
sound equipment; however, reason prevailed, and the police confirmed our right to 
be there. The police were, as usual, exemplary In their actions, and for this we 
were all most appreciative, as they saved us from what was rapidly becoming a very 
dangerous situation. 

Nonetheless, some amusing incider<-s did take place. If I may relate a 
personal anecdote, the biggest kick that I got out of the affair was when I approached 
a group of young people coming north from the skating rink. One of them, who must 
have seen me at the U.S. Consulate on the previous day, suddenly stiffened and 
virtually screamed "Don't take any of those - he's a capitalist', don't go near him I " 
Oh dear, my self-confidence may never return i Whereupon the whole bunch of them 
scuttled off in disarray, 

A few days later, several members of the C.F,B, executive distributed the 
same leaflet at the Blafra teach-in at Convocation Hall, U. of T, This was, however, 
a very tame affair, and we distributed our material with little difficulty. A campus 
cop approached us outside and wanted to know if there was any danger of a "confront- 
ation" - he then proceeded to collect samples of all the literature being disfributed, 
assuring his colleague: "It's OK. . .1 got the dopel " Proper little 007, that guy. . . 

Anyone interested in obtaining copies of the leaflet can do so by written 
request to The C.F.B., P.O. Box 544, Scarborough, Ontario,

"Owe so-called "peace" marches should be called what they really are. Death 
Marches . The pacifists are militanUy intent on abandoning society to the ravages 
of those who kill. By their aggressive non-involvement they participate in a far 
greater evil, that of permitting the slaughter of friend and foe, and of exposing the 
survivors to the danger of spiritual suffocation under a totalitarian regime bent on 
enslavement. Witness Czechoslovakia," 

Sept. 29/6a. - Rev. Cletus Healey, S.I., in New York TWIN CIRCLE 


Dear Mr. Genovese: 

November 6, 1968, 

In your October/November issue I noted a letter from Professor J.W. Daly 
In which he says, among other things: 

"There are fundamental differences between fools and 
knaves ~ just as there are between liberals and democratic 
socialists, and between the latter and totalitarian socialists. 
Let us, for God's sake, keep such distinctions in mind, and 
avoid the enormities of groups like the John Birch Society, 
which William F. Buckley has rightly declared to have done 
more harm to American conservatism than many a Left-vang 
organization ever cxd.," 

I note tliat the Professor asserts that Mr. Buckley RIGHTLY declared it 
to be a factr 

If e?har the Piofessor or IVir. Buckley can cite any enormities that they 
have in mind in this connection I will g:ydly donate $100.00 to the Edmund Burke 

Sincerely yours, 
Albert E. Bassett.

Some people mistakenly feel that the only activities of The Edmund Burke 
Society are cur counterdemonstrations. These form only the merest tip on tha- 
publicity ice-berg gained by our society. Here are a few examples of what we've 
been doing: 

- Byelorussian Ball, Several E.B,S. council members (Jeff Goodall, Joseph 
A, Genovese, and D,C. Andrews) attended the Byelorussian Bali as guests of Mr. 
x^astas Akula. Mr. Akula has recently published an excellent historical novel dealing 
with the effects of communism in Byelorussia. One of our members gave a brief but 
laudatory review of Mr. .Tula's book. Our Treasurer, Mr. Genovese urged the 
Byelorjssians to come out and attend our counterdemonstration: 

- Two ver/ successful meetings of our U. of T. Branch. Our public relations 
drive at U. of T. has been very successful. V/e have averaged two mentions for 
every issue of the Varsity, Both Jaanus Proos and F. Paul Fromm have had articles 

- Two excellent articles exposing student power appeared in the September 
issue of Canada Month, F. Paul Fromm's piece was called My University is Animal 
Farm, with a picture of our E.B.S. sticker - "Go to College and Learn to Riot." 
James MacLellan, our Montreal Chairman, also published an article which mentioned 
the fine activities of the hard-fighting E.B.S, 

- Sunday, October 20, five E.B,S. members attended a memorial service in 
Budapest Park, In commemoration of the twelfth anniversary of the Hungarian 
Revolution, Our pamphlet urged our Hungarian ftlends to come out and attend our 

- November 4, F, Paul Fromm represented us at another memorial service 

in Budapest Park, this time on a cold night. The service was in commemoration of 
those branre Hungarian Freedom Fighters who fought in desperaUon against the Red 
barbarians who crushed and re-subjugated their homeland in 1956, 

October 29| F, Paul Fromm, D.C. Andrews and Jeff Goodall jomneyed 
to the University of V/aterloo, where Fromm confron- A and cut to ribbons the 
Communist Party's Ivir, Charlie Boylan, We wond s-^ .?eral new recruits after this 

October 28. Our Uo of T^ Branch sponsored a highly controversial 
speech by member and Wallace Campaign worker, Louis de Boer. We packed 400 
people into our rented lecture room. The Vars '-y published a scmrilous misrepresent- 
ation of de Boer's remarks. When threatened wxth a libel suit, they retracted. 

F, Paul Fromm has been making many speeches in an effort to inform 
students about the lies behind the 'democratization" rhetoric of the student power 
radicals. He has spoken at Trinity College, St. Michael's College, New College 
(Nov. 5), and most recently, at Boylan Collegiate on Nov, 12, 

F. Paul Fromm joined Joseph A. Genovese in an hour-long show on Radio 
Varsity describing the aims and accomplishments of the E.B.S. On Sunday, Nov. 17, 
C.B.C. Radio ran a few minutes on a debate between F. Paul Fromm and Gar/ Periy, 
who is presently playing the clown in court where he is up on charges of obstructing 
police, as a result of the April 27 demonstration. Perly is head of the Canadians 
for the National Liberation Front and calls himself a "^;arxist-Leninist" and a follower 
of Mao-Tse-Tung, V/ith pompous arrogance Perly informed Fromm that the "National 
Liberation Front is the sole legitimate representative of the people in Vietnam." "The 
main burden of iv;r. Perly's remarks was that the E,3.S. is "fascist" (we've heard 
that before). We must be hurting them badly because both the campus press, v/hich 
is far-left controlled, and Mr. Perly have stopped at nothing to attempt to smear us. 
The left is no longer referring to us as a "fun group", a joke, as did Mr, William 
Rockett, an American exile (?) in Canada, V\/^e're hurting them to the point that they 
are desperate enough to claim that the Nazis were marching with us last April, 
Anyone who was there remembers that in his brief appearance Mr, Beattie came 
nowhere near our lines. Many of our friends of ethnic origin have equally bad 
memories of both the Nazis and the Communists , 




Recently, as a member of the E.B.S. Council, I wrote to The Hon, John 
Diefenbaker, and asked for his opinions on the subject of trade with the communist 

His reply was to the effect that Canada should continue to trade with the 
communists, except in the fields of military or strategic goods, while at the same 
time, bearing in mind that the communists are not the nicest people. 

A reasonable answer, at first glance. However, it is obvious that the 
communist monolith can only be overthrown in one or two ways: either by nuclear 
attack, (and this is obviously not a viable proposition), or by revolution from within. 

Any such revoliition would have to be sparked by the people's dissatis- 
faction with thefr regimes. And yet, when the Russians and Chinese have one of 
their periodical massive crop-failures and millions of people are in danger of dis- 
comfort, what happens? We sell them vast amounts of wheat, which could be 
supplied, for example, to Biafra. We thus save the red masters from a situation 
where thefr people would suffer on account of the shortcomings of communism, and 
would, therefore, be potentially liable to rebel against the communist overlords. 

It is apparent, therefore, since our government is willing to frade with 
our avowed enemies, that one can fafrly presume that Canada's government trades 
with the communists for the pm^ose of economic gain, regardless of the fact that in 
doing so it is, in effect, handing them the noose with which to hang us,

WHAT'S NEW E. B. S. ? 

The Edmund Burke Society members were very busy In j^eparation for the Oct. 
26th anU-communlst counter-demonstration some three weeks before the exciting day 

E.B.S. hand flags, E.B.S. ribbons and anti-communist flags and Placards 
were made well in advance, while E.B.S. sympathizers and aUles were contacted and 
IXmed of the up-coming demonstration plans . The reds became quite alarmed when 
the^ead that Council member, Jeff Goodall, announced to the press that we Intended 
to take possession of the side-walk in front of the American Consulate. Jeff was 
misquoted by the objective Toronto press — not surprising. 

As a consequence, the Union of American Exiles (U.S. draft-dodgers) arrived 
in front of the American Consulate on Friday, October 25 - midnight and aPPeared 
quite tired when the first E.B.S. group arrived at 10.00 Saturday quite fresh. 
uL trouble occurred, aside from the odd abusive remark and ^'^^ ^^'^^jj^l^^^^^^ 
next four hours), as the sweUing E.B.S. demonstrators (maximum 150) marched around 
the bedraggled U.S. cowards who were holding on to each other by then. 

Soon, after the E.B.S. people had had their coffee and apples, ^heffrst bunch 
of the wild-eyed C.N.L.F. (Canadians for the National Liberation Front (Viet Cong) 
Srivld. uL pushing and sho^g ensued while the E.B.S. demonstrators held back 
thefr tempers at such insults as "fascists", "nazis" and "pigs . 

However, after several of the C.N.L.F. ( strength now at least 1,200) were 
arrested by the police for mounting flower boxes and speaking without permits the 
whole mood of the demonstration grew more tense and explosive, ^^^f^fl^' ";;;•' _ 
frantic that they couldn't overcome the strict enforcement actions of the Toronto police, 
furSed on the e!b.S. One Red grabbed at the 6 foot E.B.S flag -^/-/--P%,3 
zapped by an indignant E.B.S. sympathizer; at this point, three C.N.L.F. pacifists 
smashed their signs on the E.B.S. flag bearer. That started it. 

The next three minutes were fUled with fierce fighting and sign-smashing. 

AS the police intervened, the writer and other E.B S. --"^^-^'"^^-J^^.^^^tsted 
oeople away from the near riot to avoid arrests. Results - no E.B.S. people arrested 
and five Tb.S. people injured with cuts (one bad one), scratches and one broken 
ZgT Vhe cim'munist C.N.L.F. suffered appreciably worse. After this the police 
on h^seback forced most of the Reds north, while the E.B.S. was ordered south to 
Queen Stteet at which point we dispersed homeward. 

Once again we had shown the Reds that they would not have the P^lbli^i^ 
field alone. Once again we insured the physical safety of the American Consulate 
by Ringing out LcS-PcUce than is customary for double insurance (not even a paint 
bomb was throw;riS"stlme)^ unlike the pro-Czech, anti-communist demonstraUon of 
fast sui^mer ^fito red paint was thrown by U.S. draft-dodgers at the Consulage ) . 
Once again tSeai^ti-communist side of the Vietnam war was aired over the news media 
( 2 T.v! national news stations, many news-papers and radio stat ons) . Once again 
he Edmund Burke Society showed that ILiS. the only mUitanUy ^""^^^'"'"""^f,'' ^,^.^," 
dayrsrall "c" conservative political organization in Canada. And we aren't kidding, 

even if we are bragging . 

The Edmund Burke Society executive Council extends its thanks and appreciat- 
ion to all members and friends who helped in this dangerous venti^e . f ^ ^o^^f^,. 
ov^ thanks to one segment of our many friends, the E.B.S. has aided the Canadian-

Butcher of Yugoslavia, Tito, on November 29th.

The following Is the text of a statement released to the press by F. Paul 
Fromm on Wednesday, October 31 . This statemen. represents our Society's position 
regarding the demonstration at the American Consulate on October 26. Fromm s 
remarks were unreported in the Toronto press, which was unfortunate, as they were 
issued to clear the air after Trench-mouth Macrae, editor of the U. of T. Varsity , 
charged that Toronto's police had acted like "pigs" at the demonstration. Various 
other leftists, both on and off campus, both self-exUed Americans and home-grown 
trouble-makers, hurried into print with vituperative fulminations against the Metro 
Police, who, they claimed, had acted as demonstration-busters: 

"Last Saturday, the Edmund Burke Society counter-demonstrated at the 
American Consulate to indicate our belief that the U.S. should pursue the war in 
Vietnam more aggressively and should fight to win. Although asked by the Pojice 
to march in a way that was politically inconvenient to us, we obeyed in the interest 
of public safety. We found the police to be polite and reasonable in their requests 
and extremely tolerant in the face of vicious personal abuse from the left-wing anti- 
war marchers . We repudiate leftist claims that the police are "pigs or brutal 
demonstration busters . Toronto's police arrested only those who provoked confront- 
ation and who broke the law. Peaceful demonstrators - left or light - were not

It seems a shame to have to waste your time at the beginning of every article 
to correct another liberal myth. However, our friendly local liberal press has again 
left everyone so generally misinformed that to faU to do so would be like going big 
game hunting after letting a liberal adjust your sights Liberals have l°"^been 
harping on themes like "Danger on the Right", etc. They love to collectively lump 
us, the J.B.S., etc. with Nazis, Fascists and Klansmen, etc. Well, I've got news 
for you, friends , Nazis are not right-wingers . Fascists are not right-wingers . 
Both are an abberation of communism and belong on the extreme left. Let s take a 
short gander at the true political spectrum. 

This spectrum would be numbered from right to left in percentage government 
from 0-100. Both Fascists and Communists are totalitarian imposing 100% govern- 
ment on thefr subjects and thus are both at the extreme left. On the ^ixeme right 
we find 0% government. ANARCHY, what else? Well whatev^ else HiUer was, 
he was no anarchist, he was mighty authoritarian. As for the Klan, Robert Shelton, 
LT,perial Wizard of the United Klans, repeatedly takes the 5th before congressional 
investigating committees. Only communists and criminals have this nasty Ixttle 
habit and I suspect Mr. Shelton is a bit of both. An "agent provocateur if you 
wUl, who was recently hot on the trail of the Wallace Campaign lavishly bestowing 
his "kiss of death". 

Naturally, all this has been leading up to something and it sure if. folks. 
Hubert Horatio Humphrey, the brains behind the "Great Society" (The real Great 
Society is the Edmund Burke Society), is a Fascist and he and his cohorts in the 
Americans For Democratic Action have been leading the U.S. into full-blown 
Fascism. Ridiculous? well, let's examine the policies and rise to POwer °f the 
father of Fascism, Benito Mussolini. Mussolini was a Leninist and held in high 
regard by Lenin himself. That was before the Ffrst World War. After the war, with 
Italian Nationalism on the rise and the world agast at the Bolshevik goings on in 
Lenin's Russia, Benito had to change his tune. He did, and very ^kiaf" ly he 
blended his abberation of Leninism, "National Socialism", into the polit^al trends 
of post-war Italy. He advocated a nationalistic socialism with no ties to the 
Soviet Union. When road-blocked by big business he promised them retenUon of 
ownership, but preached complete government control of all indusfry* So, antl- 
c^mmunist? Anti-capitalist: Benito preached himself as the ""^i^dl^f the-roader .

and changed all that. Hubert was changing with Increasing ^^^^-f^ ^^^^ J"^ 
to left-wing Ideologies. Then in 1948, as Mayor of Minneapolis, he catapulted 
hlmfelf int? national prominence at the democratic convention There he cha^^^^^^^^^^ 
a "civil rights" plank that simultaneously "raped the constitution ^^^^ ;^esdroyed its 
restraints on power-hungry politicians by placing large chunks of P^^^r and j^ls 
dlcSon into the federal execuUve. Humphrey prevaUed at that convention despite 
bitter opposition crystallized around a young country-boy lawyer named George 
Wallace. Riding a crescendo of laudable publicity, Hubert was a shoo-in for a 
fall U.S. Senate seat from Minnesota. Meanwhile, as chairman of A.D.A., or 
which he was co-founder, ho used this organization to propagate his emerging loft- 
wing philosophies . They offered federal aid to education; h- oi^ as .d tnL_ a, ..ns 
to seize control of German schools and thus raised a generation of unswerving, 
Sl^d y loyat fascist youth. So with a ready-made sales organization for his ideas , 
and a press tkpping over Itself to push him to new diz.ylng heights of power, 
Humphrey followed in the path of Mussolini.

The publication of Vaili am A. Rusher' s new book, SPECIAL COUNSEL(/clington 
House, New Rochelle, N^Y,), a series of fascinating reflections of the author's work 
with the Internal Security Subromr .■'•*?e of the An^er'-'an Sena'- e (I.S.S.C.), for the 
years 1956-57, will have special interest for Canadians if on:/ for the two chapters 
in which he reviews the strange case of E. Ho r'-? rt Ncrman , tlie Japanese-bom 
communist, whose career as a SovLec agent in our Foreign Service came to an abrupt 
end with his suicide in Cairo in 1957 on the heels of his devastating exposure by 
the Subcommittee. 

Prior to the Subcommittee's revelations and unknown to the Canadian people, 
the RCMP had tumbled to Norman's game as early as 1940, as a result of information 
from an undercover informant in the Communist fifth column who subsequently became 
an RCMP agent. "According to information developed by the Mounties", Rusher 
reveals, "...Norman had probably been a member of the Canadian Communist Party 
as early as 1935. In that year he had married Laura Irene Clark, and one of the 
official witnesses had been Charles P, Holmes, a well-identified Canadian Communist 
...In February 1940, however, an underground source of the RCMP had identified 
Norman (by now a Canadian Foreign Service officer and about to leave for service in 
Japan) as a member of the Canadian Communist Party," 

Two years later, in 1942, there was an exchange of civilian prisoners, accord- 
ing to which a Japanese economist of the Communist persuasion, one Shigcto Tsuru, 
who had been at Harvard, was repatriated to Japan, and Norman was repatriated to 
Canada. In the rush to leave, Tsuru left a raft of letters and documents in his apart- 
ment, Norman then approached the FBI, represented himself as acting confidentially 
for tuo ^^anauian s_:Ovemment, anc asked xor custody Ox tiiose papers, rie 
admitted that he was not acting in any official capacity, but as a matter of personal 
interest. He didn't get the papers, which proved to be documents involving a "study 
group" in which Tsuru had played a leading role in the thirties, Amor.g them was a 
project of Tsurii's for the "study" of American capitalism from t he Communist point of 
view, as well as a paper by E. Herbert Norman on. . .AMERICAN IMPERIALISM. 

Five years later, in 1947, Norman had been recalled from Tokyo to explain his 
close friendship with Israel Halperln , who was a member of one of the Russian spy 
rings uncovered in the previous year (1946) by Igor Gouzenko . th.^ defecting cipher 
clc-rk of tlie Soviet Embassy in Ottawa. ■ The Third Interim Report of the Tasc hereau- 
Kellock Royal Commission revealed that Halperin was known at the Soviet Embassy 
by the cover name "Bacon", and that he had "formed part of the group which was to 
operate under the direction of Captain Gordon Lunan," For reasons which seemed 
more technical than valid, Halper'n was acquitted, despite tlie Royal Commission's 
finding that "he violated the Oi"" 'cl^l Secrets Ac t on more than one occasion." Norman 
seems to have talked himself out of any embaxrasi;rr)ent on this occasion and continued 
to rise in our Foreign Service, largely, says Rusher^ because of his "powerful friends", 
chief of whom was Lester Pearson, then Secretary of State for External Affairs. 

In October, 1950, the RCMP submitted a Memorandum to the Government on 
Norman's subversive connections and activities, which was squelched. "Pearson 
actually succeeded," reports Rusher, "in forcing the RCNiP to issue a second report 

in December 1950, modifying and softening its October memorandum; and Norman 
sailed serenely on. Of this struggle behind the scenes, of course, the Canadi-in 
public was told nothing," 

Then came the famous Vvittfogel testimony. Professor Karl August "VVittfogel, 
a German-born former Communist on the faculty of the University of \'vashington,and 
famous authority on Chinese history, was testifying to the Subcommittee on the 
activities of the inf.imous Institute on Pacific Rolations and its anti-Chinese and 
pro-Soviet intrigues prior to World \iaT II, In the course of his testimony, he 
described one of those famous "study groups" to which he had belonged when he was 
at Columbia University in New York in 1933, One of its members was our boy, 
Norman, who by 1951 had risen to become Chief of the American and Far Eastern 
Division of the Secretariat of State for External Affairs,, and acting head of our 
delegation to the United Nations , if you please.' 


"When the VVittfogel testimony was made public (1951), the Liberals were 
understandably thunderstruck, for this merely corroborated the substance of the 
October 1950 ^iemorandum of the RCMP, which had been suppressed by Pearson. 

On this occasion Pearson pla v "'CLJ-i-C^.QS'ii ^l^i^. an we s not called to account, he was 

not arrested, he was not dlscn-^rc, :d . Pearson expressed his "complete confidence" 
in him, a confidence which was not so complete that he did not find it expedient to 
recall Norman from Turtle Bay, and, after the smoke had cleared a little, pack him 
off to New Zealand in 1953 as our High Commissioner, There he pastured until the 
public had forgotten the affair, and then in 1956 Pearson sent him to Cairo as our 
Ambassador with concurrent accreditation as Canadian Minister to Lebanon, 


In 1S57, the Subcommittee began to Interrogate an American Foreign Service 
Officer, one John K. Emmerson^ who, during the war, had sent a very misleading 
report to Washington from iViao Tse-tung's headquarters at Yenan re a Communist 
front operation designed to penetrate the ranks of Japanese PO'v/'s and to horn in on 
the postwar occupational administration of defeated Japan. Emmerson it seems, 
knew Norman, had known him for years, had dealings with him in Tokyo in 1945, and 
had met him again in Beirut in 195S. The Subcommittee proceeded to review its 
accumulated evidence on Norman with Emmerson, and subsequently published the 
transcript of its interrogation, Pearson blew a gasket, lisped sarcastically about 
"innuendoes and insinuations" and stated that "IVir, Norman was subjected, . .to a 
special and exhaustive security check. As a result of that check our confidence in 
Norman's loyalty was not weakened in any respect,,," Norman may have been loyal 
but to whom? It is interesting to note that Pearson's "exhaustive" check did not 
include any consultation of Prof, VVittfogel, Norman's fellow-member in the Commun- 
ist cell at Columbia,' 

On the heels of this, Pearson was to face a further embarrassment. Shigeto 
Tsuru (remember him?) the Japanese Communist who had been repatriated to Japan in 
1S42 (he had played a major part in Communist intrigues in postwar Japan) was now 
back in America, as a visiting lecturer at Harvard. The Subcommittee subpoenaed 
him to get at the bottom of his Interesting documents left behind in 1942, about which 
Tsuru had almost completely forgotten. They especially wanted to know why Norman 
should have been so eager to get his hot little hands on them, "Tsuru testified" , 
Rusher reports, "that he had met Norman at H-. -ord^ through a mutual frlo:^d, in the 
spring of 193o, V/l.^'-in a year they were both members cf a srady group - yet another 
of those famous study groups,' - at Harvard, founded. , . 'for the study of American 
capitalism from the M^-^.'xist po'r.'- of view/' The Tsuru testimony also revealed that 
Tsuru had been introduced to, of u.U people-.. I::rael Halperin, b/ Nrrman, "possibly 
around IS 37". 

All of this evidence, of course, meant nothing to the defeatists and concil- 
iationists, who clamoured for the abolition of all Congressional investigations into 
fifth column Communist activities in North America, In Canada, according to Rusher, 
"Lester Pearson's bland and total rejection of the massive evidence against Norman 
was quite enough to satisfy even those individuals and newspapers that were preparing 
tc oppose Pearson in the election, Canada, firmly in tjie grip of political forces we 

in Decamber 1950, modifying and softening its October memorandum; and Nonnan 
sailed serenely on. Of this struggle behind the scenes, of course, the Canadic.^ 
public was told nothing,"

V/hen the Wittfogel testimony was made public (1951), the Liberals were 
understandably thunderstruck, for this merely corroborated the substance of the 
October 1950 ^iemorandum of the RCMP, which had been suppressed by Pearson. 

On this occasion Pearson pla v^. tt cool; Norm an wes not called to account, he was

tc oppose Pearson in the election, Canada, firmly in the grip of political forces we 

may call liberal In the broader sense, wa s virtually unanimous in wanting no so-called 
'McC^rthvism' in its public life. The Information concerning Norman, accumulated by 
the RCMP in the years preceding 1950 and placed on the public record for the first time 
by the ISSC on March 14, 1957, was not really evaluated and rejected by Canadian 
opinion; It was simply ignored, on Pearson's repeated assurance that it was wholly 


Then came the news that Norman had committed suicide in Cairo. The fftt was 
now In the fire. In the lynch-mob atmosphere which prevailed in the communications 
media. Rusher and his colleagues awaited the full fury of the co-exlstenUal wolf pack. 
At this moment, Monsignor Bela Varaa .prominpnt Hungarian anti-Communist and head 
°^ ^^^ Hungarian-American NaUonal Council turned up at Rusher's office to thunder 
"like an Old Testament prophet" that "You will be savagely attacked, but you are 
light, and you must never forget it.' " 

The attack, of course, was unleashed: the Subcommittee was widely and 
thoughtlessly accused of having hounded an "innocent" man to death. The attacks, 
of course, ignored the incontrovertible evidence, and seemed founded on nothing 
more substantial than Pearson's assurances that the charges were "slanders" and that 
Norman had been cleared by the Canadian Government's alleged "exhaustive security 
check". The Subcommittee of course, knew that this was not the case. "From our 
vantage point in the Subcommittee", writes Rusher, "we knew how empty Pearson's 
assurances actually were. The truth was that there had been no security check 
worthy of the name, and that the full force of the case against Norman had never 
reached unbiased eyes and unfettered tongues until March 14, 1957, when our Sub- 
committee published the transcript of its first Emmerson Hearing. Even then, a 
complacent press had in effect conspired with Pearson to minimize the clear impli- 
cations of the evidence. . . It was with an almost hypnotic fascination that we 
watched our critics inch out onto the limb Pearson had inadvertently provided for them." 
Pearson, "the cool, moon-faced opportunist who had quarterbacked Herbert Norman 
through the Canadian Foreign Service, bullied into silence the Canadian security 
officials who knew the truth concerning him, and all but succeeded in concealing from 
the world forever the facts about his protege's long Communist record" now began to 
fear that if the anti-American hysteria went too far his "assurances" would evaporate 
in the heat of the evidence against Norman, and issued "a call to Canadians for 
forebearanc^." It was to no avail; Pearson had unleashed a storm he was now 
powerless to abate. The liberal newspapers continued to scream for the suppression 
of the Subcommittee. On V\^ednesday April 10 (still 1957), President Eisenhower 
held his regular press conference, and it had been fully expected that he would add 
his voice to the clamour against the Subcommittee, all of which would accelerate the 
campaign to abolish all such Congressional investigations. It didn't work out that 
way, Elsenhower pleaded that the whole affair "be dropped. If possible. .." 

"What we did not. know", writes Rusher, "and were not to learn until some 
months later, was the Eisenhower also had the benefit of a dispatch radiod from 
Cairo by American intelligence sources less than 48 hours after Norman's suicide - 
in other words, on or before Saturday, April 6. According to this dlsoatch. Norman 
hQ4 cjingd wjtl^ j ftlend, a dnrtor. the nlo h t before his death and had told this friend 
th^t;, as g yesult of the impact of our h earings on the forthcoming Canadian elections 
he f^ered that a Roval commi s sion would be appointed to investigate the entire 
"^aff^n that, if called before such a Royal Commission, he would be forced to 
implicate 'gjxtv or seventy' Cai^^ d ians and Americans and that, rather than do this . 
he would kjll himself/ ' The public, of course, was unaware of all this, just as they 
remained in ignorance of the published record of Norman's service as a fifth columnist 
in the service of Communism. Here, as more recentiy, the press has failed in its 
primary function: to keep the House informed, 


Then, on April 13th, the day Parliament closed up shop prior to the federal 
election in June, John DiefenbakP-r, who had previously tossed his rhetorical bricks 
at the damn Yankees, in one of those stunningly dramatic moments which studded his 
career as leader of the Opposition, rose in the House to put a question to Lester 
Pearson, the Secretary of State for External Affairs: "WUl the Minister say that the 

allegations before the Sxibcommittee of the United States Senate on March 12 and 21 
specifically were untrue, unjustified and had no basis in fact? " Pearson's sweeping 
denials outside the House were one thing, but however Liberal his ethics, he would 
not want to be caught lying to Parliament, especially since he had no way of knowing 
precisely what Diefenbaker was prepared to spring on him. He waffled. He read a 
prepared statement (Diefenbaker had filed his question in advance) stating that Norman 
"as a university student was known to have associated with Communists or persons 
thought to have been Communists, and he mari n no secret of it. — These associatjops 
were, of course, known to us. V.e examined Mr, Norman's record on the basis of 
confidential information. I examined this information more than once myself." No 
reference was made to the massive evidence revealed by the American hearings. 
Diefenbaker, with an instinct for the jugular, pressed his question: would Pearson 
state categorically that this evidence was "untrue, unjustified, and had no basis in 
fact? " Pearson is reported to have blushed, as the crowded visitors' Gallery^^ 
focussed intenUy upon his fumbling, "I've made my statement", he replied, "I will 
stand en that. I am not going to say at this moment whether any single statement 
made in a United States Subcommittee is accurate or not. I have not got the state- 
ment before me." Diefenbaker hammered back, "The answer is an equivocal one. 
He equivocates. He has the statements released by the Subcommittee in connection 
with its hearings of March 13 and March 21... He has come into the House with a 
prepared statement, but he has not denied those charges. " The nation went to the 
polls in the knowledge that Pearson would not reiterate to Parliament his extra- 
Parliamentary assurances that the evidence against Norman was totally a matter of 
slander. On the following Wednesday, April 17th, Pearson tried to salvage something 
from the debacle, in a telegram to the Montreal GAZETTE in which he pointed out that 
the Subcommittee has based its findings on the October 1950 Memorandum of the RCMP, 
re which the Canadian people had known nothing until that moment. He than went 
on to point out that the RCMP had modified its view in a second Memorandum (in 
December 1950), which he quoted to the effect that the first Memorandum was based 
on "mistaken identity". This first Memorandum, let it be remembered, revealed 
Norman as a member of the Communist Party and covered much of his subversive 
activity from 1935 on into the 40's. 


To give him the lie, the famous undercover informant whose intelligence was 
the basis of the original October Memorandum which Pearson had suppressed, now 
turned up and publicly vouched for the accuracy of his information. It was no less a 
person than Pat Walsh, now research director for the Canadian InteUigence Publications 
of Flesherton, Ont., which is Target No.l of Pearson's children, the Trudeaucrats . 
"I met Norman personally in Toronto in the thirties," Walsh revealed, "When I was 
with the Canadian League Against War and Fascism and he was secretary of the Can- 
adian Friends of the Chinese People, a commie front. He was introduced to mo as 
'Comrade Norman' . A chap by the name of A.A. McLeod, who later became a Comm- 
unist member of the Ontario Legislature and editor of the Communist Canadian Tribune 
told me that he had sponsored Norman as Secretary." Walsh's connection with the 
CIP publication of embarrassing information re the left-wing acUvlties of another of 
Mr. Pearson's famous proteges, Pierre-Elliott Trudeau. may account for the special 
edge of malice directed against CIP from which other antl-Trudeau "hatemongers" 
are presumably spared, 

Norman left two suicide notes before he died, which were published on AprU 
18th (the day following Pearson's wire to the Montreal GAZETTE) in the NEW YORK 
DAILY NEWS. One was to his wife, in which he said, "I have no more hope of life, no 
more future." The other was to his friend, the Swedish Minister to Egypt, Brynolf Elq, 
in which he said, "I cannot bring myself to tell you the true reasons that impel me to 
commit suicide." Hardly what one wo uld expect firom a man hounded to death by 
slanders. Pearson had received copies of the notes from the Egyptian authorities, 
and authorized a statement to be released on the next day (AprU 19th) branding the 
versions published in New York as "complete fabrications" . Now the NEW YORK 
DAILY NEWS texts were probably retranslatlons from an Arabic translation, and may 
therefore be somewhat variant in wording from the originals. In any case, those 
originals have never, to this day, been pubUshed by the Canadian government. 

Diefenbaker, of course, won that election, and the whole matter was dropped. 
Mr. Norman's "powerful friends" have never been more powerful than they arc today, 

and wo must now pay the pric;,- for not having swept thorn into the dustbin ton years 
ago. Such are the consequences of the lotuH-oaffng apathy whioh has charactt^rlzod 

Canadian political life for fai too many years.

found the answers to these questions. A biief review of the facts of Cesar Chavez' 
career as a "union leader" over the last 3 1/2 years reveals record of consistent 
repudiation of his National Farm Workers Association (now accepted into the AFL-CIO 
as the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee ) by the agricultural workers of 
California and Texas. Spearheading the labour opposition is the Agricultural Workers 
Freedom-To-W ork-As s oclatlon , led bv Tose Mendoza ("We, the farm workers, have 
never walked out of our jobs. Chavez does not represent us and we are one long way 
from starving.") This is the record: 

1965 The so-called strike was called on Sept, 14th at a meeting of the N.F.Vv.A. 
by Chavez and his leftist revolutionaries Gilbert Padilla, Dolores Huerta/Bill Esher, 
Norma Redman, and Douglas Adair, most of whom have never picked a grape except off 
the dining room table. Initial target was the San Joaquin Valley, California, which 
produces over 40% of all fruits and vegetables consumed in the U.S.A. with head- 
quarters in Delano. Mexican-American workers were appealed to on racial grounds. 
Those refusing to Join the phoney strike were subjected to violence and their children 
threatened (Cf . Murray Norrls, Associate Editor, The California Farmer. quoted bv Rex 
T. •yvesterfield. "Sour Grapes: The Move to Control Otir Food Supply" , AMERICAN 
OPINION, Dec. 1968). 

1966 The California State Senate's Factfinding Subcommittee on Un-American 
Activities publishes its Fourteenth Report , exposing the extent of the Communist 
control of ChaVez* "union", in considerable detail. Has Mayor DeBnison read it? 
Next target chosen: the Mexican-American workers of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. 
Five years of local efforts to organize the pickers here had come to nothing, largely 
because of favourable working conditlqns and wages and because those attempting to 
organize the workers had no agricultural background, Marty of his agitators were 
driven from the fields by angry workers. The local clergy proved hostile, which led 
to the importation of two pro-communist priests from San Antonio . Fr. William Klllian 
and Fr^ Sherrlll Smith to con the workers. In their desperation, they "brought in the 
town prostitutes and suggested that the workers 'spend the day pleasantly' rather than 
work in the hot fields" (Cf. Westerfleld In AMERICAN OPINION). 

A phoney march of some 19 people (mostly women) was organized from San 
Juan to Austin (In a chartered bus, yeti ) but this fizzled out, and none of the marchers 
were wcarkersl The "revolutionaries" then returned to Delano, California, 

1968 Chavez stages a 25 day "fast" as a publicity stunt. This is much exploited 

in the press and enhances Chavez' national image, but backffres locally when he is 
seen gorging himself in Delano restaurants from time to time. "Huelga House" (huelga 
is Spanish for "strike") is founded on a forty acre estate outside Delano and operated 
as a commune. Next target was the Coachella Valley in Southern California, where 
Chavez* hatemongars are again largely repudiated by often angry workers , A sham 
"election" for Chavez' "union" is held and denounced by the local press as "unrepres- 
entative" (321 persons out of 3,000 voted, and 19 of these were against Chavez!) 
Again the Chavez crowd leaves in defeat.

to TELEGRAM columnist Ron Haqqart' s figures In his column for Nov. 23, 1968). 
According to audited records of several growers, workers earn between 3 and 4 dollars 
per hour, and annual earnings range from 3,000 dollcirs (part time) to SfOO dollars. 
Compared to wages paid in other parts of the U.S.A. , California farm workers earnings

•: '- ■;• Because Of the racial hatemongerlng which has characterized his campaign, 

because of his communist connections, because the majority of the agricultural 
workers are relatively well paid and satisfied with their working conditions, and 
because they ^re unequivocally opposed to Red terror and submission to totalitarian 
control,' Chavez has failed, after 3 1/2 years of intensive, effort, to corral the farm 
workers into his phoney "union" . That is why he has been forced to resort to a 
consumer boycott : to put the squeeze on the growers to obtain their cooperation in 
foisting a commxmist-controlled "union" on the workers .and to Insure the Party's 
ultimate control over American agriculture i 

" -^ Toronto is the third largest market for California grapes, and that is why

One could have expected that the Soviet Union's post-war emergence as a 
super-power would have generated enough Interest among Canadians to examine more 
closely this new phenomenon. Disappointingly enough, this has not been the case. 
From time to time, we were Jolted out of our political lethargy, when our own security 
was menaced by the "Russian bear" . Today few politically-minded Canadians could 
recite the A's and B's of the so-called Gouzenko affair. On the whole, with the 
possible exception of our diplomatic corps and various other government and educat- 
ional institutions, the Canadian people know astonishingly little about the Soviet 
Union, erroneously labeled "Russia", Let me ask you a few questions: 

1, What is Russia? 

2, V\Ahat is the Soviet Union? 

3, What is the difference between the two? 

4, V'TTiat is Russian colonialism and its historical base? 

5. How Is it possible that the majority of the Soviet Union's population 
(according to unofficial sources) is non-Russian and yet unable to free 

6, To further confuse you, why is It that our Canadian educational institutions 
and government agencies to some extent continue to disseminate the ^'Joscow- 
version of material pertaining to the history, culture and political aspirations 
of the colonized peoples of the Soviet Union? 

Some of these and related questions have come to my mind recently when 
reading the review of my recently-published novel "Tomorrow is Yesterday" in the 
September issue of "Straight Talk! " . The reviewer wrote: "Byelorussia lies between 
Poland and Russia." To some of you, perhaps a majority, reading about this "all-but- 
forgotten victim of Red imperialism" would be like discovering America. What, again, 
is Byelorussia? Is it a Russian province? A country? Or is it neither a goose nor a 
gander? What about Cossackia, Idel-Ural, Uzbekistan, or Tadzlkla? 

I shall not attempt to answer all these questions, except to examine one: Vvhy, 
despite latest historicai perspectives, is there so little interest generated among 
Canadians In the peoples of the Soviet Union (erroneously called Russia)? Should we, 
E.B.S. members, <£? something about It? 

For as long as one cares to remember, our country has been in the sphere of 
British (lately American) influence. To both these giants, pre-revolutionary Russia 
has been a closed book. As late as after the Second World War Sir Winston 
Churchill labeled Russia "a riddle wrapped In a mystery Inside an enigma". Western 
explorers roamed through the world, gathering a wealth of material on the far-away 
exotic and not-so-exotlc peoples and countries. Yet, except for a few diplomats and 
some trade people admitted to imperial St. Petersburg or Moscow, Britain, France and 
later the U.S. had neither ears nor eyes inside that "enigma" . Thus it came to pass 
that our libraries abound in material on man-eaters of New Guinea or the Jongo, 
Aborigines of Australia, while, for Instance, you will search In vain for objective, if 
any, material on Byelorussia and Its people, history, and culture. 

That Illustrious Englishman George Byron exclaimed (I quote from memory): 

"Spires of barbaric Moscow minarets 

Gleam in the sun, but 'tis a sun that sets..." 

If Russia was barbaric in Byron's times, what about her, say, three centuries 

before? A famous Byelorussian scholar, statesman and printer, Francis Skaryna from 
Eolacak helped to us^er the educational Rennaissance into Eastern Europe when, in 
1517, he printed and published in Prague the first Bible in the old Byelorussian lang- 
uage, A couple of decades later he took his printed books to Iv.osoow. They were 
labeled heretical and were seiited and burned in the Iwoscow square. This is one 
modest example when you contemplate the fortunes or misfortunes of history. Once 
highly developed in parliamentary and cultural realms, Byelorussia today is "all-but- 
forgotten" while there emerged a colonial monster, barbaric to its anti-human core, 
whom we have repeatedly tried to embrace and whose version of history we use in our 
schools and other institutions. What about the other so-called Soviet Republics? 
Long before Muscovy, they had been independent, then lost their sovereignty to 
Moscow, regained it after the February revolution, and lost it again to the Soviets. 
Today, alas, they constitute the largest potential political force who, if supported by 
Western powers, should and would dismember the largest colonial empire in the worldo 
Occasionally we do hear about them from the lips of Moscow. This is like learning 
about a disobedient slave from his cruel master. 

Recently I leafed through Eugene Lyons* "Workers Paradise Lost" . The review 
barbs on the cover extolled him as an undisputed expert on a multitude of questions 
Russian or Soviet. V.Taat an expert; Bulldozing through the most turbulent period of 
that slave empfre, he found not a single word of mention about Russian or Soviet 
atrocities against its colonial nations , nor did he dwell on the Soviet post-revolution- 
ary aggressions against and rape of these unfortunate small states on the perimeter of 
Muscovy. Our educational and political institutions abounii in "experts" like 
Eugene Lyons, 

The question arises: why has conscientious humanity (provided there is such 
an animal) delegated these colonized peoples to historical limbo? Vv'hy do we raise 
hell when the Red Army occupies Czechoslovakia? V/hy are we touchy about injustices 
administered to Blacks in South Atcica, vainly try to help Biafrans, yet at the same time 
chase away the labyrinth of nightmares concerning tlie colonized peoples inside so- 
called Russia? Not only are we Impotent to act, but we refuse to learn about them. 
If we do at aU, it's Moscow-version history, the pseudo-science twisted and mutilated 
to accommodate Russian imperial (red or white, no matter) designs. 

There was a big exodus of intellectuals from the Soviet Union during and 
Immediately after the last war. A wealth of material on colonized peoples of the 
Soviet Union is gathering dust on the shelves of various Western libraries and educat- 
ional institutions, patiently awaiting modem explorers. Alas, in vain. In Canada, 
any spokesman of an ethnic group from a country under Soviet domination would tell 
you about our not-so-versatile politicians, who, while attending their celebrations, 
so imaginatively dwell on equal human rights of all peoples and individuals, promising 
proverbial political ples-in-the-sky to help the colonized peoples to free themselves, 
only to evaporate in Ottawa's political, parochial cauldron after the ethnic votes have 
been harvested . o , 

Let's get back to an original quesUon: why do our institutions of learning 
continue to disseminate the Moscow-version of history relating to Russia and the 
Soviet Union? Is it an oversight, sheer ignorance or a purposeful policy? V(/e have 
yet to discover an answer, I do not propose to set up a Royal Commission on the 
subject, although It is my honest opinion that the money on it woald be better spent 
than say, on the Glasco Commission, No matter the means, it is time we propeUed 
our educational and governmental institutions, as related to thefr attitude to the 
"riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma", into the present day. 

Is it necessary for The Edmund Burke Society to get involved in this? Vve are 
basically an anti-Communist movement. It is then a paramount must for us to learn 
before we act. Let us explore the home vase of Communism, its roots in Russian 
colonialism, and the victims of both. We may weU be and should be ahead of others 
if we are to continue as a movement of action. 

Let us hear on this subject from EcB,S, members,

1968 has passed on, but the Edmund Burke Society is alive and well and 
definitely not in hiding but in the vanguard of the political and moral battle against 
Communism and socialism in Canada, v-^hile others like the eternal businessman, 
the P.C.'s the so-called Liberals, the press, etc. have prostituted their ideals and 
principles for money, power and prestige; the E.B.S. and a few other small groups 
have taken the rough road of no compromise and collaboration of "telling it like it is I" 
as loudly as possible. Let's have a quick glance back. 

In early '68 we had a running battle with a Scarborough school when we exposed 
some pro-communist politicking through posters in its halls. Later, we were instru- 
mental in bringing to light to the 0?»tarlo Legislators widespread abuse of government 
student loans. 

In April '68 we "150" had many a confrontation with "2,500" pro-communists in 
front of the American Consulate, thus preventing their occupation of the Consulate side- 
walk. The Toronto police were marvelous. Nine of the opposition arrested - none of 
us, with only a few laruises from some animal-type Trotskyites, 

In June '68 we worked feverishly to distribute 38 thousand (yes, 38,000) 
leaflets of Trudeau's socialist background - many door-to-door, amid the most vicious 
yellow-press. Liberal, and even some Conservative hatemongering against anyone who 
dared question Trudeau's age (49 now). Those were the days of separating the boys 
from the men in the E.B.S. Happily, I report there are no boys left in the Society. 

Meanwhile, the E.B.S. was active on the campuses, electing F. Paul Fromm 
and Jaanus Proos to the U. of T. Student Administrative Council, holding debates on 
campus, establishing branches at York U., Sir George Vvilliams U., and McGlU U., 
establishing student contacts at U.B.C., St. John's U., IVicMaster U., Regina U., 
Guelph U., and enlisting members in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. 

In October '68, the E.B.S. again faced 10 to 1 odds at the American Consulate 
where we suffered a number of small Injuries, while 36 pro-communists were arrested 
on a number of charges, Vve again, by responding to police orders and supporting 
"Metro's Finest", incurred no arrests. 

Since Oct. '68 we gave numerous speeches to ethnic organizations, held meet- 
ings, debates, and carried out a successful campaign to expose the red lies of the 
California Grape Boycott. 

I have just touched on the highlights of 1968; however, space does not permit 
me to enumerate the dozens of other small (but important) continuous projects carried 
on regularly by our members. 

So I take this opportunity to thank rill those who have stood by the E.B.S. 
through the good and bad times and wish them even greater success with the Society 
for 1969, 

As for "69", we look to accomplish some of the following projects while 
continuing others: 





Expansion of our STRi^IGHT TALKi subscription to 2,000 (1,000 now). 

Expansion of our membership. 

Establishment of an E.B.S. weekly message "phone-in" system. 

Procurement of an E.B.S. office for drop-in discussion and meetings. 

A final documentation of all pro-communist organizations and individuals 
In Canada: sort of a "Who's Who on the Extreme Left". 

Expansion of our activities with anti-communist ethnic organizations, 
like the Chetnlks, 

Expansion of our campus activities. 

Establishment of more and better liason with real conservatives in the 
Progressive Conservative Party.

approach to politics . W- believe in direct

been, the "E.B.S. approacli" nyht from our very 
beginning in March 1967, when our 3 founders, 
D.C. Andrews. L. Smith, and F. Paul Fromm , ' 
decided that the meandering, introspective 
approach of the now-defunct Canadian Alliance

Throughout the month of December, we were busy speaking out on a matter of which 
Canadians have heard only one side - the International effort to boycott California 
grapes. IVue to their policy, the "Progressive" Conservatives of Metro Toronto 
slumbered In their .j 9I wishy-washy slough of hibernation. Politically active only 
at election time, It is no wonder that the "Progressive" Conpervatives have found Metro 
Toronto to be a political disaster area in the past three federal elections. As our 
Chairman, B.C. Andrews says, to be effective you must be politically active 365 days 
of the year. 


What prompted the E.B.S. to become the first Canadian group (that we know of) 
actively and on a large scale to adverUse and pamphleteer aaalsst the boycott of 
California grapes? For one thing, as usual, the press had presented only one side. 

t^uT ^^^^^ ^^^' ^^^ impression that Cesar Chavea was a njartyr, a holy man 
selfl6tesly giving all his life and strength to downtrodden, and racially-oppressed 
Mexican grape-pickers: truly a second Gandhi, or third, if you count the late Martin 
Luther ( the most notorious liar in the United States" sgid J. Edgar Hoover) JQng as 
the second Gandhi. However, a completely different story was also filtering up from 
the United States . Humap Events, National Review. American Qolnlon . ail carried 
reports highly critical of the boycott. Human Events' Ralph de Toledano reported that 
^ape-pickers told him that Chavez' gang had threatened them. In the same issue, 
Mumiy Norris reported that "violence has marked this. (union) recruiting at times and 
has become so rampant that wives of the farm workers to med a group known as Mothers 
Against Chavez to make their plight known. They told of a mother of three being 
beaten and left on one of Delano's main streets... As the assailants left her lying 
bloody In the street they warned that it would be worse next time if her husband didn't 
quit working in the vineyards." ( Human Ev ents. October 12, 1968 p.9.). Three years 
^this sort of "recruitment" in Delano has netted Chavez' United Farm Workers' 
Organizing Committee (U.F.W.O.C.) only 500 members out of 8,000 to 10,000 workers 

.i^"'^"'^5^ "^"^^ Chavez' union have that, upon coercing several farms Into signing 
with them , they were unable to provide the necessary workers . Yet, , this mlniscule 

unlotT- was bding touted by sensationalist journalists, demagogue politicians (like 
the late Robert F, Kennedy), and gullible clergymen as a champion of the poor. 

In reality, these "poor" strikers were being financed In their drive in the San 
JoaquirF Valley by a $247,000 Office of Economic Opportunity grant to Mr. Chavez, 
accordirtg to a report of a fact-finding committee of the California Legislature, (Human 
Events , ^id,). Louis de Boer reports that the vast majority of. the grape-pickers, the 
anti-ChaV^^z men, supported the placing of ads in many major newspapers to urge 
people n6t to boycott grapes, not to throw them out of a job. The real reason for the 
boycot* Is hot to improve the workers' lot (their average wage Is already between 
$2.25 and $2.50 an hour), but as "union officials bluntly state, if they can crack the 
grape #?6*»^s. they will have the way open to organize all 300,000 of the CallfOTnia 
farm labourers." (Human Events . ibid.). This woul^l mean compulsory unionism and 
mllliotis^ of dollars in union dues to the A.F. of L.-C.I,0. It is not surprising, then, 
that one of lEoronto's chief disseminators, of pro-boycott propaganda is the United Farm 
Workers, A.F^L.- C.I.O., 182 Labour Qbuncil of Metropolitan Toronto, 15 Gervais 
Drive, Don MUls. Working out of rooih 505 In the s^iiie building is the Ad Hoc 
Committee for Boycott Calliomla Grapes D^y. 

Thus, this fall, when the boycott came to Toronto, your Society decided to 
speak up. We were particularly disturbed by the Report of the Un-American Activltl® 
Sub-committee of the California Senate (available from us at $2.50 a copy postage 
prepaid) which detailed^ along with photos and photostats, communist infiltration, 
support, and organization for the boycott. Groups financing the boycott include the 
Communist P6rty, U.S.A., and the Black Pianthers. 

As you can see, there is a yawning gap between the sordid motives, leadersihlp 
and methods of Chavez' boycott and the professed humanitarian goals. The progress 
of the boycott in Toronto was Insidious, particularly as its leaders exploited the 
ignorance of many humanitarians and do-goodeis. It was disturbing to see in my own 
university, St. Michael's College, how many tender-hearted teeny-boppers were 
persuaded to wear the white and purple lapel buttons; "Please, Don't Buy California 
Grapes." Although less than forty students out of 1,800 at St. Mike's so decorated 
themselves, even this was an Intolerable success for Chavez' lop-sided story of 
twisted figures and cynical half-truths. Going the rounds was a stark letter-size,

The last three monthly meetings of the Toronto Branch of The f^mund Burke 
Society have featured a large book table, manned by Mr. Proos. Sales both before 
and after the meetings have been brisk. 

Our book table sells a wide variety of books, among which are The Fearful 
Master , a well-documented and comprehensive book on the United Nations; Ncxie Dare 
Slf Treason; QHnhos of Socialism , an excellent book explaining consen;atxve,ftee- 
onterprize exonomlcs by short three- page answers to ^",^h<:ommo^n cliches as 
"Socialism is the wave of the future"; and Road to Revolution Philip abbot Luc os 
msTde story of the ultra-radical left and their plans and methods f°^ -^^f "^^^f^ 
bringing about a violent overthrow of our democratic institutions. Two ot^er books 
deserve special mention . We are proud to have among our ranks' an ^l^'}^^'^^^^^^ 
informative novelist, Mr. Kastas Akula, who has recently published a book IsffiSE^ 
s Y^^terdav , about communism In his native Byelortissla (reviewe^d in the September 

su^o^sJa Ut Talk.' ). This book is avaliable either at f^^^^^^^^^eTTL in 
our Scarborough post office address for $3.00 paperback or $6.00 hard-cover. Last in 
mention, buTLst In sales, is our own sleek little booklet, with its emerald green 
covS! ^khlls_the.E.B^ Selling for a dime, it maktes an --f-^P^^^.'^^^^^^t^^t 
BetweU its covers is a concise explanation of our beliefs -^^/^^-f^^^; J^^ "^^J^ 
done and intend to do; what it takes to become a member; and what we offer in the 
way of literat^e, fUms, and speakers - to clergymen, service groups, schools, and 
Interested groups. 

Another big-seller is our bumper sUckers available at five cents apiece again 
either at meetings or from Box 544, Scarborough. In sharp green and black lettering, 
we have "^Support Your Right to Keep and Bear Arms" bumper stickers . Our blue and 
:Site-Support?o^cal Police" bumper stickers are strong sellers and ^avc produced 
•pleasant and astonished reactions from officers who stopped two of our members for 
speeding. The average cop expects the sour-pussed /^^--^^^^--fX^rnf 
to police by the liberal sophisticates or the greasy, hair-to-their-belts , left-wing 

hippies . > 

RecenUy, Jeff Goodall sent me a postcard from Indianapolis. We have'since 
ordered a hundred and fifty of these red, black, grey, and white postcards wh^ch as^^' 
^Would you Give Blood to the Vletcong? " and showing a Negro medic ^d"iinist^'^^^^^^^^ 
first aid to his wound.d white buddy. At a nickel apiece, these are flxst-rate cards 
to send people, particularly wishy-washy liberals who are for trade with communist 
countries and who say that all cooservatives are racists. 

FinaUy, we distribute, from this table, in large quantities the two dozen different 
varieties of stickers, which our members leave around in public places and use on ail 
theL co^espondence. If you'd like to be able to stick "I'm fighting poverty I work for 
a living" cJ'-sli^^^^^^^^ -cancer of Liberty - Never Worked" stickers on your income tax 
return envelope, write to Scarborough and we'll send you some free.

Several members, who are unable to attend our Society's regular meetings, have 
requested an explanation of how the Society Is governed. 

What follows is an attempt to answer these members' questions by a summary 
of the rules and practices, as approved by your Council, which govern the operation 
of The Edmund Bvirke Society. 


National CouncU . The Edmund Burke Society of Canada is to be governed 
in matters of policy and principles by an Executive Council to be composed 
as follows: 


Permanent Members 

- 3 founders 

D.C. Andrews 
F, Paul Fromm 
Leigh U . Smith 

National Treasurer - to be elected every four months 

by all members eligible to vote at the largest branch (Toronto) . 

i , 

c) Chairmen of duly constituted local branches, plus 1 extra member 
for each 25 members in the local branch. 



(2) a) The Council of the Toronto Branch of The Edmund Burke 
Society shall consist of the following: 

' - any resident founder (permanent member) 

- treasurer - elected every four months, , 
; . . ,! with any member tligible to vote 

- 3 other membersto be elected every four 

months with any member eligible to vote. 

b) The Council of the Toronto Branch of the Edmund Burke Society shall 
function as a day-to-day executive. It may exercize a veto power 
over a motion of a seminar or general meeting, though this will seldom 
happen since to be effective, a volunteer organization like ours needs 
the co-operation and good-will of all members . 

^^- c) One must be a member of The Edmund Burke Society for 4 months before 
being eligible to run as a Council member. 

' d) At each general meeting the Council shall make a report of its acUons 

and decisionsto the members. Any member may then question or discuss 

the actions of the council. 

■ ■ e) Uke the National Council, the Council of the Toronto Branch of The 
Burke Society shall elect from its ranks a Chairman. This Chainnan wlU 
• be the titular head of the Society, at either the national or l^anch level. He 
will chair all meeUngs or delegate this responsibility should he see fit. in 
consultation with the Council he shall draw up agendas for meetings and 
. . : may impose tirte-Iimits on speakers -to facilitate discussions. 

■' Perhaps, in written form, these rules and procedures seem a little rigid and 
arbitrary. The CouncU has extensive powers and freedom, because the Society needs 
dallyXctlon and leadership between meetings. It is impossible ^^-^ Urn e we have 
a maUlng for our dlstribuUon manager to call up each member and ask. Say, do you 
think we ought to spend $25.00 on postage stamps? " 

The Council may over-rule a decision of a general meeting and the Chairman 
mav curtaU debate. These are pretty arbitrary powers and, as members can testily, 
TeVeTseldom used. ■ They exist as affective ^safeguards to minimize the d^^^P"- 
Towers of infiltrators ^n our midst. Yes, we must consider the threat of ^^^^^-^^ 
we've already screened out four, feefgce they became members , luckUy . Now that we 
Tre such a v^al force and such a mUltant thorn in thd side of the local Left, we must 
be prepared to handle infiltration. ' .V 

To quote briefly from page 12 of our booklet. Wh^t Ig tl^c E.B.S, "The EdiTi"nd 
Burke Society is much more than an organization: it is a ^o^M^L ' a society of friends, 

While we stress individual rights, as conservatives we recognize, as well, man's 
intrinsic need of friendship with other people. Accordingly, we seek to promote team- 
work and a spirit of comradeship and co-operation amongst our members, above and 
beyond the business-like approach of the organization man," The only reason that 150 
members and friends of the E.BoS. have twice successfully defied the violence of 
Canada's Vietcong in front of the American consulate, outnumbered 10 to 1, is that we 
have had the solid good spfrit that comes from trust and a real co-operation among 
members. The E.B.S., - small in numbers, big in enthusiasm and spfrit - could never 
have made the impact it has on the political scene had it not been for the vigourous 
esprit d? corps of our members. Thus, these rules will only be used against trouble- 
makers amd infiltrators; for, an arbitrary executive Council would only be a half-dozen 
voices in the wilderness, unless they can count on the support and respect of the members, 


At a recent meeting of the Executive Council, it was decided that the Society's 
membership system was in need of an overhaul. 

It was decided, for example, that as the Society has now established itself as 
a force to be reckoned with in the eyes of the opposition, it is now essential that the 
Society concern itself with the Quality of its members, as opposed to having a mass- 
inductiop programme to give the impression of a large membership. 

Membership now entails a certain degree of personal risk (as witness the vit)lence 
last October, in spite of our successes then), and the executive feels that a high calibre 
membership is an essential prerequisite to future success. 

Accordingly, the designation of "Associate Member" was created. This is to 
serve two purposes; 

(1) In future, all persons wishing to join the Society, but who do not live in an area 
where there is a sanctioned E.B.S. group in operation, will be entitled only to associate 

(2) All persons applying for membership in an area where there is an operative E.B.S. 
group will ffrst have to serve a period of associate membership, before being able to 
apply for full membership. 

As all members who are presently full members, though not able to participate 
fully in Society activiUes, will not be requfred to relinquish thefr full memisership status, 
it remains only to specify what associate membership entails and requfres: 

(1) All applicants must be sponsored by a responsible member of the Society, except 
whaipthe applicant does not subset^uently Intend to apply for full membership. 

(2) Associate members aire nsi entitled to attend general meekings, but will be 
Coqufred to attfind setninars, and may participate in other £«B.S.. activities > (e.g. 
demonstrations, leaflet campaigns, etc.), 

(3) The associate membership fee is $3.00 for 6 months, and confers a six-month 
subscription to the Society BuUetln . 

(4) After 3 months, the associate may apply for full membership status. (The Society 
will not approach the associate) . This will be granted subject to the applicant having 
attendGd all seminars and having demonstrated a satisfactory Interest and participation 

in E.B.S. activities. 

Cancellation of Membership 

It was further decided that any member, full or associate, may have his member- 
ship voided by a unanimous decision of the Council (subject to the right of appeal)for 
any two of the follovylng misdemeaners: 



Failure to pay dues for more than two months '' ' ' V 

FaUure to s*how an Interest in Society activities, e,g,, counter demonstrations, 

pamphlet campaigns , etc. 

Failure to attend less than one out of every two general meetings 

(full members only). 

Conduct (during society activities) likely to bring descrecUt or disrepute to the 

Society, e.g. the making of unauthorized statements to the mass media, arrest 

at demonstrations, etc. 



All the foregoing changes and regulations have been made with one thought 
In mind: to improve the quality and calibre of our members^ so that the Society will 
be better able to face the considerable chaUengea of the future. 

As any organization grows in sl2e, ft can become unwieldy, and it becomes ' 
difficult to prevent undesirable elements flrom creeping into the Society membership. , 
Hence, our tightening up on membership requirements. This is also why all members 
attending general meetings are now required to sign an attendance roll. 

Finally, the council Is sure that the members hijp will appreciate the reasons 
for these changes^ since they are made for the colloctlve benefit of us all. We feel 
certain that you will concur with our sentiments . 


The Edmund Burke Society is something that is very real, concrete, definite i 
and substantial. And like everything else that is real it has an image (or images). ' 
The image may cr may not be a likeness of reality. This depends on the distortions 
or lack thereof In the medium used to reflect reality into an Image. 

Well, since we have an image what are we to do about it? Worship it? 
Forget it? I doubt if either of these extremes are going to be really called for. First 
of all, we must realize that the Image changes as a function of what angle you look at it. 
A liberal looking at it is liable to be Induced to vomit. A conservative, however, from 
his angle, mi-yht be induced to say, "Deal me in partnerl " 

It would be suicidal for our organization to be concerned about our image to the 
liberals. If we as a society fell into this trap, we would soon be spending all our 
time, energy and money on the defensive trying to polish our image in the liberal news 
media. Our effectiveness as an active conservative group would be lost. We would 
have been neutralized, because wo sold our birthright for a "pretty Image". Rather 
than being concerned about our image in the liberal news media, it can be used as a 
barometer of our effectiveness. The degree to which we compromise and relent will 
result in grudging praise, whereas the degree which we tenaciously cling to our 
principles will result in less than faint insults. 

The only portion of our Image with which we ought to be concerned is that Image 
viewed Lorn our fellow conservatives' angle. 

It is from the ranks of our fellow conservatives that we must seek support, 
members and Scraight Talkl subscriptions. It is with our brother organizations of othtj 
conservative societies that we must establish liason and co-operation. It is only here 
that we can afford to bo flexible and perhaps ev^n indulge in a little image-polishing 
from time to time. The stains on the liberal image will become battle scars to glow 
triumphantly when viewed from the conservative side. And as our fellows flock to our 
banner, the confidence in our ranks wUl be transmuted into FEAR in the liberals' as thej- 
view us the Society whom they helped to create, the Society who flourished under their 
persecution, the Society to whom they have never learned to give the kiss of death. 

~ Louis de Boer - 

"I have observed that the philosophers (of the Enlightenment), in order to 
insinuate their polluted atheism into young minds, systematically flatter all their 
passions, natural and unnatural. They explode, or render odious or contemptible, 
that class of virtues which restrain the appetite. Those are at least 9ine out of 
ten of the virtues. In the place of all this, they substitute a virtue which they . 
call huipanity or benevolence." 

- Edmund Burke, 
in a letter to Chevalier de Rivarol, 
June 1, 1791. 




Louis De Boer 


Back In the 1930's, so thi^ tale goes, there was a baby-buggy factory in Germany. 
One of the workers, his wife in expectancy, was repeatedly turned down in his efforts to 
buy one. Ingeniiis young rogue that he was, he decided to steal one. Part by part was 
craftily smuggled home. However, when assembly date rolled around the young German 
found himself not with a baby-carriage, but a machine gun. 

In the 1940's, to get back to reality, an organization was forged to guarantee 
eternal world peace. Since then we have had more than sixty wars. So the idea of the 
rest of this article is to examine part-by-part the U.N.O. and determine if "machine 
guns" are still in vogue. Of course, v/e must also keep in mind that the management 
"KNOVv'S" the end product. Only we coolies could possibly be deceived. 

That brings us to the point: who does run the U.N? Well, of the three principal 
U.S. State Department architects of the U.N,, Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, and 
Dean Acheson, only the latter has escaped identification as a "Soviet Agent". But 
Achesdn shouldn't feel left out; no sir, because he sure left lots of room for doubt. And 
it was Hiss who selected the initial U.N. staff, the majority of which have beer exposed 
as communists by Senator Eastland's Senate Inter-Security Sub-committee (S.I.S.S.). 

Besides, consistent observation has trained even the most inept of political 
monkeys to realize that communists only join organizations in order to subvert and 
control them. No bigger clue is available to the state of the U.N. than the eager member- 
ship of the entire Red Bloc. ' 

The Soviets wanted the U„IT, They pleaded far it at Yalta. Their press over- 
whelmingly to this day supports it. They have subverted it from its creation. Their 
agent, Alger Hiss, wrote the U.N. Charter, and another of their agents designed the 
U.N, flag. These last two points are very interesting. The U.N. Charter bears remark- 
able similarity to the Constitution of the U.S.S.R. Both are worthless' in that there is 
tacked on at the end of every statement of human rights or guarantee of human liberty 
the phrase "except where provided by law" . All rights are at the mercy of the lawgivers 
and are not considered inalienable. Also the emblem of the U.N. is very similar to 
that of the U.S.S.R. The major difference is that the former is ina modern style and 
lacks the blatant I»a;iimo:- and sickle superimposed on it. 

However, the real clincher as to who runs t'hie U.N.O. occurred in 1956 when the 
U.N.O. reluctantly agreed to investigate the "Red" invasion of Hungary. It was found 
that no one would testify unless he received guarantees that his name would be kept 
secret from all U.N.O. personnel and specifically the Secretary-General. Interesting, 
eh? I wonder what these antt-communlsts had to fear? Whatever it was, their fears 
were well founded. The person in charge of keeping the secret list was hounded out of 
his U.N, job for keeping faith with the freedom -flghtes of Budapest, Later this same 
man, Paul Bank- Jensen was found shot In a New York City park. And so the plot thickens. 

But it is in its control .of th*= large "neutral" bloc that the Soviets have forged 
such a dependable weapon set of the U.N, Composed mostly of emerging Afro-Asian 
countries, this blgc is characterized by radical socialists, antl-U,S. revolutionaries 
specializing in one-party dictatorships . Many of them achieve their thrust to power 
through terrcr and anarchy as Kenya's Mau Mau Chieftain, Jomo Kenyatta, did in the 
'50's, Even the less socialistic "neufral" nations seem represented at the U.N, by 
"communist" influence in excess of the proportion at home. Communist-sympathizing 
Secretary-Generals (and they seem to be a dime a dozen such as socialists Tnygvle Lie, 
Dag Hammarskjold and marxist U Thant) who are only apparently at odds with the Soviets 
are wcrth a sccce of Gromykos . 

To add to our troubles the Western nations conceded at the founding of the U.N. 
that all Under-Secretaries for Political and Security Council Affairs would be "Red". 
This important post controls all U,N. military and police actions, supervises all disarm- 
ament of member nations, and controls oil U.N. -entrusted nuclear power. 

This man has been the Supreme Commander on our side (?) in the Korean conflict

General MacArthur ('There is no substitute for victory") fired. 

And, if you think you've heard it all you're going to be disappointed. Believe 
it or not it was the Soviets who pressed for a U.S. site for the U.N. However, to 
really appreciate their generosity with American real estate, you have to hear J. Edgar 
Hoover remark that the Soviet U.N. delegates provide the backbone of their Intelligence 
system. These people can and do commit blackmail, murder, kidnapping etc. under 
the cloak of diplomatic immunity. Soviet defectors have been murdered or kidnapped 
back to the U.S.S.R. while the hapless law enforcement agencies looked on. 

But enough is enough, and for those of you interested in a few hundred pages 
of well-dociiimcnted facts from more sources than I can shake a stick at, I recommend 
G. Edward Griffin's book THE FEARFUL MASTER . The book takes its title from a 
George Washington quotation that reads "Government, like fire, is a dangerous servant 
and a fearful master". Yes folks, the U.N. certainly does seem to be united. The 
question is what are they uniting behind? As a so-called "poace" organization are 
they promoting "peace" Western-style or a la Mao Tse-Tung? Are they making machine 
guns or baby carriages? We've only scratched the surface here. Concerned citizens 
should investigate this monstrous facade for themselves. Canadians everywhere 
should resent and resist the surrender of the least lota of our sovereignty to this 
"Trojan Horse". Our government officials must be discouraged from flying U.N. 
flags. Remember, no Trojan Horse can stand a good interior inspection. By exposing 
this fraud to our fellow citizens, we can neutralize this weapon of "Red Fascism" and 
deal the conspiracy a mortal blow.

would take a pamphlet to the store manager and explain our side of the grape boycott 
to him, using the book published by the California Senate to illustrate many points. 
Only one manager proved hostile. A manager of a Red and White store in the east end 
was so Intrigued with our pamphlets that he personally wanted to give them out to his 
customers. We received some rather fltlghtenlng news from a manager of one Dominion 
store in North Toronto, who reported that he had recently been visited by several Black 
Panthers who had threatened him with everything short of violence if he did not remove 
the grapes from the shelves. A manager of a store in Scarborough also reported a visit 
from the §rim-faced Panthers. The boycott's effectiveness has varied. One manager 
In Port Credit reported no loss of sales, though the manager of a small Scarborough 
store reported sales down 50%. 

While Jeff was speaking to the managers, the other five members would tumble 
out of the car and, in short order, would take up their positions: one at each exit to 
the store; three fanning out through the parking lot, putting pamphlets on the drivers' 
door handles of customers' cars. As Jeff reappeared from the store, our driver would 
pick him up and then swiftly collect the- ^Tther members and, then, we would be off 
again at top speed to the next plaza. 

We only ran into trouble onee. The Golden Mile Plaza, grown a little 
tarnished, since its glittering hey-day In the '50's, hires several guards whose job 
seemed to be running around behind us taking pamphlets off cars and threatening to 
call the police if we didn't leave. Chairman Andrews sarcastically referred to these 
men In their dingy green cover-alls as "thinking famUy men, politically motivated." 
The frantic scurrying around of these pitiful men could not undo the very considerable 
paniphleteerlng that we had accomplished. 

This was the one dark incident in a very exciting three weeks before Christmas. 
Thanks to the dedication and selflessness of ourhard-working members, our drive has 
been successful in both contacts and publicity beyond our wildest expectations - our 
grape expectations. And from our grape expectations have come truly great results.

On the occasion of the Prime Minister's visit to London for the Conference 
of Commonwealth Prime Ministers , the press had itself its usual baU reporting on the 
"impact" of our national "swinger" on the British public. It also reported on the more 
serious confrontation of Pi.rr.-F.lllott Trudeau ("We do have to put up with some bums 
in the Liberal Party") with a few hundred Canadian students studying in the Unltea 
langdom. It was on this occasion that he was asked a direct quesUon re Marxism. 
According to the transcript published in the DAILY STAR (January 13), it went something 
like this: 



Vvhat society would you choese to make Canada? 

Socialist or capit-ltst? 

Labour Party Socialist, or Cuban Socialism, or Chinese 

Socialism - Socialism from each according to his means? 

From each according to his ability, to each according to 

his needs, Vvould you support that? 

Yes, in theory, h..» nr.t g^rx-^r^ly m practice. ..(Editor's 

Note: the TELEGRAM'S Peterjhornson. deleted the key 

word "entirely" from his report.) 

Vvould you support Communism? Vvould you consider 

that ideal? 

Yes, I would, in a better world. I think that small 
societies, religious societies, iabbutzim, people living 
in primitive societies, can work these things out. . .1 do 
not think it is workable under present cfrcumstances. . . 
But if you ask me if it is an ideal, a beacon, something 
which the world should have, yes, I think it is. . .but if 
we were only saints, we would have this society, but 
we ain't" (sic). 


The official theory of the Soviet dictatorship is tiiat the absolute despotism

what began as a direct question might have put old Prussian Pierre on the spot. 

What is the reality of Marxism? Lenin put it squarely on the line back in 
1920 when he said that "Soviet Socialist democracy is in no way contradictonr to^ 
one-man rule and dictatorship. ..a dictator sometimes fulfils the will of a class. 
So did Mao Tse-tung in 193o when he wrote, "Political power grows out of the 
barrel of a gun." 

As for those fantasies about a "Communist" Utopia with the state withering 
away, and all contributing according to his means, etc., it would ^l^^^J^^^'^ 
remember that "The language of Communism., .is not so much a '"^f/ .^^J^^^f "/^^^^^^^

To those who have always been free men, never knowing the fear and terror 
of life in a Communist Police State, to read this book is to realise with startling 
suddenness the terrible dangers we all face in these troubled times of Communist 
aggression in Ozorhoclovakia, Vietnam, Berlin and elsewhere. 

Mr, Prychodko, himself a victim of the NKVD Secret Police and a Sioerian 
prison camp, takes us back to the early days of Communism in the Ukraine. Through 
skillfully drawn characters, he recounts the destruction of organized religion, and 
the forced collectivization of the farmers. Dissenting "Kulaks" (landowners) are 
rounded up at gun-point in the night, and taken to Siberian slave camps, where most 
of them die miserably of starvation and overwork. Roman, the central figure in the 
story, finally escapes across the unending Taiga to find a temporary home with a 
settlement of Ukrainians transported years ago to the Siberian wastes. In the 
meantime, his sister, separated at the time of his forced departure, is forced to sell 
herself in marriage in a vain attempt to obtain the re-unification of her family. 

The story continues with tales of Secret Police dungeons, sufferings and 
deprivation; how Roman manages to keep his freedom and start a family with the aid 
of false passports, but finds himself caught up in the Second V\/'orld war as a tank 
comnnander. By feigning insanity he manages to escape the massacre of his Red 
Army group, but finds himself in nearly as bad a predicament as a prisoner of the 
Germans, forced to dismantle time-bombs in ravaged Munich. 

But happier times are to follow his traumatic experiences, and the story ends 
on a joyous note as he and his family pass the Statue of Liberty as they enter New 
York harbour, following their liberation by the Americans at the close of Vi/orld War II. 

It is difficult to describe the emotional impact of this book; so many feelings 
are evoked by the quality of absolute rea lls.n of people, places and events that 
Mr. Prychodko so skillfully brings to life, and the fluency and engaging continuity 
of the writing style. One dormant thought remains in my mind, however; no matter 
what the cost we must never, never let it happen here. 

This book is most worthily dedicated to those brave men who even now are 
fighting the Communist enemy in Vietnam, so that we all may sleep more safely at

While you don't have to be a leftist revolutionary to get a Canada Council 
Grant these days. It certainly helps. Several years ago, the Canada Council gave 
Canadian Communist Party member Stanley Ryerson a grant to help him write a book. 
This year the Insidious move toward tax-payer subsidized revolution gained momenthm. 

University of Toronto mathematics professor (and assistant head of his 
department) Chandler Davis received $15,130. Davis, an American, is currently 
travelling in the Soviet Union on a previous Canada Research Council donation of 
$6,350. (Peter Worthington, Toronto Telegram) . Now, Chandler Davis is no mere 
mathematics professor. In the article just cited, Worthington writes: "He was 
convicted in 1954 on 26 counts of contempt of Congress. . .for refusing to answer 
questions. Many of them involved the Communist Party and its alleged front 
organizations," Davis, whose conviction was upheld in the U.S. Court of Appeals, 
took the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer questions about whether he had 
attempted to recruit staff or student members of the University of Michigan to join 
the Communist Party, Why? Did he have something to hide? He also refused to 
answer a direct question asking whether he had been the treasure of the Ann Arbor 
chapter of the National Council of Arts, Sciences, and Professions, a communist 
front group. Again, why would an "innocent" man refuse to answer? 

Davis subsequently came to Canada and joined such notorious comforters 
of communism as Abraham Feinberg, He, in turn, would be joined by the ever-growing 
contagion of American draft-dodgers and deserters, who organize and form a powerful 
shock force f T left-wing agitation in this country. Davis has treated his new home- 
land no more loyally than he treated the United States, 

Davis has been a key figure on campus in leading and aiding the campus 
militant left and In continuing his activities of corrupting or, shall I say, "politicizing" 
students, actions very similar to the ones he was ashamed or afraid to talk about to 
the U.S, Congress in 1954. Peter V\/orthington reports: "Mr. Davis took an active 
part in the Hemisphere Peace Conference in Montreal last December, which erupted 
into near-violence when Maoists and anarchists clashed with Communist Party types. ,," 
The Bulletin of the Canadians For the National Liberation Front for February 1969 
(page 13) describes his role thusly: "As for the C.N.L.F., we had originally decided 
not to go but were persuaded by the N.L.F. presence and by Chandler (see-no-evil) 
Davis. When we aaived, the organizers tried to refuse us recognition as delegates 
and would have succeeded if Davis had not threatened to resign from the committee." 
The Canadians for the N.L.F. 1& a militant pro-Vietcong group which "calls for the 
victory of the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam (and) calls for the defeat of 
U.S, imperialism by the armed struggle of all the world's peoples," (ibid, p. 14). 

Compared to the opulence of their award to Chandler Davis, the Canada 
Council appeared to be pikers when they only contributed $5,500 each to Stanley 
Gray, Marxist professor and agitator at McGill university, and Phil Resnick, a U. of 
T. militant and a leader of the Toronto Student Movement, which demands that these 
views (among others) be presented in the classrooms at the University of Toronto: 
(i) Cnnada is a dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, (ii) The state and the ruling class 
work together to oppress the working man. (Hi) Communism means the end of the 
state as a coercive institution and the creation of a society where the priorities of the 
economic and social system are social and human need and not profit for the capitalist 
class, Marxism is a flexible guide to action; not a rigid dogma « ..Combat Bourgeois 
Ideas.' " Stanley Gray led a march last month demanding an all-French university 
at McGill, Gray is in the process of being fired for refusing to sign a statement of 
regret for helping disrupt a Board of Governors meeting and refusing to refrain from 
future disruptions. Describing himself as an "active revolutionary" Grey threatened: 
"For the sake of the whole university, I would advise you to drop everything", when 
told of possible disciplinary action. Burke might well have been thinking of men like 
Gray when he wrote of the French Revolutionaries: "Something they must destroy, or 
they seem to themselves to exist for no purpose," 

And what are we to say of these subsidies? Senatop Paul Yuzyk reflected 
questions in the minds of many Canadians when he stated: "I sometimes wonder if 

there's a network in some of our Crown corporations trying to subvert our system. I'd 
like to know more aoout who the persons arc who make suqih awards to some of these 
people. The Canadian Government shouldn't be subsiiiizing dissent - especially • 
anarchial (sic) and violent dissent," This is the point: Davis, Resnigk, and Gray 
are all committed to a foreign ideology, alien both in origin qnd to our way of life. 
All three start from the premise that the very society, whose tax-payers are •>uDSi- 
di2lr: them, is corrupt, exptoitive and must be destroyed. These three, nevertheless, 
do not seem aoout to scruple at accepting gifts taken by big -government taxation in 
this capitalistic and "imperlaUstlc" society. .^ . , 

The Natlorar Research 'Council Grants for study have exceeded $64,000,000. 
this year. This is tax-payers* money and should be spen( wisely. We are in no 
position to quibble about academie'qtialifications, Testirpony by his colleagues sugg- 
ests that Chandler Davis is a qualified mathematician, "Vi/'hlle academic considerat- 
ions should come first, men like Davis, Gray and Re snick are committed to the 
destruction of our society; moreover, they vise their aoademiic positions to propa- 
gandize and lead students In disruptive agitation^ (which directly attacks the system 
and society which is paying them) and thereby aid our enemies in Peking and Moscow, 
The Soviet Union would not give a Barry Goldwater a grant fo* research. A bank would 
not hlrfe.a known thug, bent on robbing it. Why, may we ask, does our government 
knowingly aid subversives? 

■ The criteria for grants should Include the whole man. His background 
should indicate some loyalty to our society and way of llf^. In addition, his wDrk 
should be of benefit to Canadians - either research into C«nadiana or into subjects 
that he will teach ^t Canadian universities. The grant-giving bodies should, "thereby 
attempt to assure that tax-payers', rnpney is we^l spent. 

Letters to the editor of both the Toronto Star an<J the Telegram reflected the 
indignation of many common, hard-working tax-payers, 1\ Mrs. D. Chatterton v«>te 
"To think my husband gave his life for this country so that men like Stanley Gray, a 
Marxist and troublemaker, couid te^ this country to pieces and I could be allowed to 
] ^ve on a $ZM. 00 monthly pension," E. Fraser wrote to the Telegram^ " . . .Mr.Dwyer 
cf the Canada Council claims "they" (the Canada Council) are not half-wits. He's 
light. They are- complete idioti." 

I'll 'go a' Step- further, Thev are traitors ! |he records and loyalties of 
men like Gray, Davis, and Reshlck are public record. The Council knew of Gray's 
record and held up its decision until a full-meeting of all pouncll members could be 
held. ( Globe and Mall. Monday April 2J, 1969, p. 7) TJieq, with full knowledge, 
a majority agreed to give this grant to a known agitator and subversive. They cannot 
plead ignorance. In War-time men are hung for what a majority of the Canada Council 
did. Not once but at least three did the Canada Council give grants to promin- 
ent agitators* - "As a dog teturneth to his vomit; so a fooj r^tumeth to his folly. " 
(Proverbs 2S:11).

In the last issue of STRAIGHT TALKi . Jeff Goodall made a prediction that 
th<: "• ': -vxad next move into an anti-citrus fruit boycott to complement their assault 
c.s u > grci:,^ fanners. As I review some new documents and personal accounts that 
r '- : Iiave sent our way, I too wish to hazard a prediction. The rag-tag rabble of 
i ....._l ie:dst groups in this City have added a new one to their number - one which 
may prove to be extremely militant, quite popular, and extremely dangerous. The 

name of this group Is P.A.K. (Panhellenic Liberation Movement). 

Letter-size, hand-made signs built around a magazine clipping of Andreas 
Papandreou began appearing around the University of Toronto in early April, They 
announced this extremely a jle and articulate man as "leader of organized opposition 
against the Greek military junta." Papandreou, who will this year be teaching at 
York University, spoke at Varsity Arena on April 20 and denounced both the anti- 
communist Greek junta and N.A.T.O. 

With Papandreou at least temporarily ensconced in Toronto, it appears to 
me that our city will become the centre of anti-junta agitation in the world. Two 
facts emerge about the local anti-junta Greek: their militancy and their far-left (if 
not pro-communist) leadership. At the anti-war, anti-American demonstration of 
ApJril 6, a band of fifteen burly Greeks joined the dozens of other factions that marched 
under the Trotskylte auspices. An E,B.S. member, who had spotted these Greeks on 
April 5, was seen and menaced by a half-dozen of them at the May Day Rally whose 
sponsors included several local communists. An E,B.S. source within the ethnic 
community reports that on Easter Sunday the pastor of a local Greek Orthodox Church 
invited the Greek Consul General to speak. Part of the congregation were anti-junta 
and, as with leftists everywhere, conducted themselves in an intolerant and obstruct- 
ive manner. They heckled the Consul G6neral and cut the microphone cables. The 
service ended in a shouting, fist-swinging melee between pro and anti-junta Greeks. 

Greece suffered extensively in the late forties from communist guerillas 
and partisans. Murdered relatives ensure that most GreeJcs have very bitter memories 
of communism, Otur.ethnic source informs us that most of the. local 'Greek' .. ^ 

communists and opponents of the junta are not Greeks at all but Macedonians, who 
were communist partisans in the late MO's and who ;'led Greece when the attempted 
communist takeover failed, -.., ,..,.''-.'.;• 

The local "Greek" communists achieve importance now that they have a 
strong leader, Andreas Papandreou is an internationally known figure. The local 
press is favourably inclined toward him and portrays him as a champion of democracy. 
As with certain other "champions of democracy" (Fidel Castro, to mention but one>, 
the press has mistaken appearance for reality and has beeh slpppy in its research 
into Mr, Papahdreou's background. The local Left, however, has wasted no time 
in hopping aboard the oandwagon of support for Papandreou's P.A.K, The leftist 
Students' Administrative Council of the University of Toronto-granted $100,00 of 
student money to P.A.K. at an Executive meeting on April 3, 19S9. Alberto Di 
Giovanni, who has been a promoter of the Grape Boycott, is an active N.D.P, worker 
and friend of the Lewis family, and is touted as an N.D,P, candidate for Alderman 
in North York in the up-coming municipal elections, presented the P,A.K, case. 
The minutes of this executive meeting read, in part: "Mir. Di Giovanni gave details 
of the visit of Andlreas Papandreou through the sponsorship of the Panhellenic Liber- 
ation Movement to Totortto on Sunday, April 20, 1969 at 6:00 p.m, in Varsity Arena, 
He also conveyed the need to financial support for the P,A.K, (sic), (A motion by) 
Biggar FreimSn:, That S^AiC, give $100,00 to the P.A.K. with a verbal support for 
their alms, Dlscusslori took place over the issue of whether that statement of 
support would Ihdicate approval for the reinstatement of the King. Motion cairied 
as amended. Di Giovanni - Douglas: That the S.A.C, statement of support be 
worded: "Be it resolved that the S,A,C, support the P,A.K. and the democrative 
(sic) government which Andreas Papandreou represents against the military dictator- 
ship today existing in Greece." ''.,',.. • 

Thus, S.A.C, speaking with no attempt at achieving a consensus on 
.oehalf of all its coerced members, supports the "democrative" government advocated 
by Andreas Papandreou. That, then, is to be the leftist line. Let's see how the 
recqrcj of this champion of "democrative government" checks out with his image. 

A press release issued April 1 from P.A.K. offices at 75 Thomclifxe Park 
Drive, Suite 711, Toronto 17, enthuses: "With the death last year of his father, 
Andreas becomes the inheritor of the Greek liberal tradition, as well as the undis- 
puted leader of the largest political party in the country. Once in power, at the 
head of a reform government, he will become a figure of staggering national stature. .. 
He embodies the way ahead for Greece, .. .if democracy is ever to be reborn in the 
land that gave it birth," Let us hope that he does not emoody the way ahead for 

Items appearing In the RpvI^w of the News {February 2C, 196;) point out 
some sobering facts auout Papandreou's background: "Andreas Papandreou w^-^s a 
member of the steering committee of the Communists' f ^'f ^^^"^^"^f ^J^^.\^^' p'^f^^ 
from 193. onward. In a printing office owned by his father he pubUshed the Party 
Daoer The Populalre . When the police arrested him as a Communist, his mother 
roared to everyone she knew until the authorities were happy to let him go in return 
for a promise to leave the country and a written paper containing the names of his 
associates..." (page 17). 

Andreas left Greece, subsequently travelling to Paris and on to a Harvard 
education and twenty-years as a professor and economist In the United States. He 
ignored his homeland's order of mobilization in the war against Nazism and was 
declared a deserter. In 1944 Papandreou pere became Prime Minister of the Free 
Greeks, and again a mobilization order was Issued for Greeks living abroad. Ancireas 
did not reply" (ibid., p.U). Yet. this same Papandreou was quoted 1" The Sunday 
Times of London, England (February 10, 1963) as saying: "So far as I and^ Greek 
i^^HTs are concerned, it is our heavy responsibility to put aside our platform 
differences, our own personal vision of the kind of Greece we wish to work for We 
must dedicate ourselves to the over-rldlng task of liberaUng our land . Where was 
Andreas during the liberation of his homeland from Nazism? 

' .. When his father won the 1963 election as Prime Minister, Andreas 

renounced his American citizenship, returned to Greece, and was elected at Patras 
as an M.P. Andreas, cashed in on a little old-fashioned nepotism, and was made 
a Minister. "Soon he was meddling In finances, economics, and foreign affairs to 
a point where Mr. Costopoulos the Foreign Minister, requested foreign emoassies . 
not to have contact with the young Papandreou on matters not pertaining to his post. . . 
His implication in the Communists' Asoida plot to unseat the monarchy and take Greece 
out of N.A.T.O. was exposed." (ibid. p. 18). The ensuing scandal forced his resig- 
nation. Dr. FrancisX. Gannon quotes an A.P. dispatch printed in the New York Times 
Uuly 29, 1965) reprbduced In r.nrr^ntion. Please', (vol.2, # ), and sheds more light 
on this phase of Papandreou's career: "His father charged Andreas with supervision 
of the Greek central Intelligence service, K.Y. P.. . .Andreas began a purge of K.Y.i'. 

-. personnel. Furthermore, his name is linked with a left-wing officers conspiracy 
that started Inside K.Y.P. . .His father lost office over an argument with the King an 
how the charges should be investigated." 

This same report goes on to point out: "Andreas began writing political 
pamphlets at sixteen and was associated with a Marxist movement. . .At that time he 
. had a close friend whose brother, Leonldas Kirkos, is now an important official of 
the legally permitted pro-communist party, E.D.A. Klrkos and Andreas know each 
other well and are suspected of collaboraUng in producing the mobs that have oeen 
staging street demonstmtlons... Since his return (to Greece) he has contacted 
important foreign Communists on European travels... He encburaged Cyprus to buy 
arms from Russia and there are hints of neutralism in his talks." 

In the article already cited from Review of th e News . Hilaire Du Berrier 
explains Papandreou's role in Aspida: " Patiently working within the Government, 
Andreas Papandreou and other Greek Reds had developed an inter-connecting comm- 
unist network in preparation for the showdown. Aspida (shield) had been set up m 
the Greek Army to prepare a purge of anti-Communist officers and ensure the advance- 
ment of Reds. The theme of Asoida was not that non-Communist soldiers are oad, out 
that by nature they are fascist unless embodied in a people's army. If it is not a 
people's - le. a Communist army - its thoughts are against the people. Therefore, 
as Greece's military represented an 'insurgent army', it should be purged before its 
reactionary thoughts could be translated into action" (pages 19-20). Luckily, for 
the safety and freedom of Greece, anti-communist army officers, like Colonels 
Patakos and Papadopoulos , moved first (in 1957) and stymied a weak King, a vacill- 
ating parliament, and a viper's cave of scheming leftists, Andreas Papandreous 
hissing In their very midst. At the time of the Colonels' revolt, Asp;da had already 
"infiltrated Army Intelligence, compiled files on officers it planned to immobUize or 
destroy, and regimented officers marked for advancement". (Ibid., p. 20). 

And what of Andreas Papandreou? The supposedly oppressive junta, whom 
P.A.K.'s news release claims use "torture of the foulest kind... as a majcr tool of 
repression", was sufficlentiy lenient to allow Papandreou to leave the country after 

- 6. - 

a few days in prison. Forsuch an allegedly bestial government, such toierance is 
hard to expialri, M-ayi^e the answer is that the urutaiity lies on the other side, 

v- : ;, 1 • After circuitous walnderlTigs , Papandreou hasiianded here in Toronto as a 
professor and local leader. His background gives us a clue to the idi^ological tint 
of tiie^ latest Liberation Movement. As Papandreou and his crew of Greeks gain 
influence, it looks as if it will beup to us" to Inform the public aoout their leftist 
hue. As Edmund Burke insisted in his Thoughts on the Cause of the Pre^^nt 
Discontent (1770) ; "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they 
wlii fall one iyy one, ah unpltled sacrifice in a contemptible struggle," We will 
keep you Informed on the doings of Andreas the Greek and his popular front of pro- 
Communists and establishment Leftists who 'are using our city as a pase for anti-

- April 6th 1969 was the first of 1969's two projected peace demonstrations. 

It was generally raferrod to as Metro's largest, most peaceful demondtration ever, 
and this waS probably due to two reasons; the Trotskyite leaders obtained a legal 
permit and kept their forces peaceful (after the numerous arrests in October), and a 
more militant and violence-prone group, the Canadians for the National Liberation 

Front, stayed home. 

The Edmund Burke Society did not march or counter-demonstrate. The day 

selected for the demonstration was Easter Sunday, "We saw no virtue in a counter- 
demonstration, with its attendant risk of violence and noise on a day which is sacred 
■, to Hiany Canadians. As regards the Pinko peace-marchers, we will just say this 
much: The countries behind the Iron and Bamboo curtains are not exactly renouned 
for their benevolence towards organized religion; thus it wa's no surpri^se that a pro- 
communist organization such as the Vietnam Mobllizatlori. Committee should choose 

-bvefl a Holy Day for one of their anti-American, Anti-Capitalist parades. 

However, the E.B.S. did send a small group of members, armed with spec- 
ially prepared leaflets, to go ahead of the Red sympathizers and distribute them, so 
that the public would still understand our position. The' only problem that We 
experienced in our pamphleteering was that many people refused to accept our leaflets , 
thinking that we were part of the demons-tratiqal One impression with which we 
came away was ihat radio station CHUJyl has. definitely taken a hard swing to the 
left, I approached their mobile unit, and was promptlytold to "Go and tell it to the 
Chinese" . Wow! We wonder if Larry Solway is aw^e of the biased individuals who 
are weeding out objective "contemporary" a«^ws, to the jnasses over his wave length? 
Room for a cleanup there, we guesal - ■ ,..,.,. .. .... , , ,,.. 

Paul Fromm was given a hard time by a CHUM news reporter, 'arid out of 
the hassle was born an apfMTOprtate gutteral rhyme - "Chum-scum" . A CHUM news 
reporter in mod clothes approached him. Accompanied by a sleepy, raven-haired 
hippy miss, the reporter hailed Fromm and sarcastically said that he supposed he 
would record "our" side of the story though he already knew what it would be. Fromm 

-kept his temper in the face of such blase arrogance and explained why we favour an 
allied victory in Vietnam , The reporter asked why an intelligent person like Fromm 

' eould mouth such anti-communist drivel,. . Fromm explained the human suffering and 
misery caused by communism,. At this point a dozen ethnic supporters, who had 
silently listened to the exchange, shouted their support for Fromm's stand. "What 

■ do they know? " the frazzled reporter shouted, Fromm retorted tliat they knew more 
than a loud-mouthed, arrogant, politically naive bigot like Larry SoKvay. Our cool 
mod reporter went, as they si ay in Yorkville, "rang". Fromm closed the discussion 
by saying that big, brave Solway had repeatedly refused an E.B.S. challenge to appear 
alone on his station in a man-to-man discussion with him. The E.B.S. contingent 
sent the reporter packing with a chorus of abuse upon a station that had proven itself 

• a real chum to the local left by giving this march strong advanced publicity.

Greg Robinson noted a real interest in our Society. Many students were 
surprized by both the eloquence and the mUitance of o^c situdent conservatives. Book

Mr, Forester asked to say a few wftrds and told oui- members'that he would have been 
out of work and looking for a job, had it not been for the efforts of Edmund Burke 
Society members. Mr, Forester has an open-line radio show on Radio Station 
C. H.I.N, mornings from 9 to 12. Unlike Larry Solway, the lefUst loud-mouth and 
intolerant, phone-slamming host of C .H.U.M.'s open-line show. Forester diligenUy 
seeko to have both sides on his show. Scrupulously polite to callers, he neverthe- 
less has antagonized the local Left with his no-nonsense anti-communism and strong 
support for law and order on campus. From time to time, the Left blitzes C, H.I.N. 
v.i:h letters denouncing Forester. Two months ago, foy the second time in our 
hist-:-/, E.B.S'. members leapt to Mr. Forester's defence and sent in a counter- 
borrage of letters supporting him . 

The Edmund Burke Society has won another victory, at least temporarily. 
Mr. Forester's speech was r<: jeived with wild enthusiasm by members present, who 
appreciated a public fiu ;■ '.-th enough guts to stand up and acknowledge our efforts 
to defend individual freeaorn and the free flow of infcaroation and ideas in this country,

The following is the full text of a statement Issued by the E.B.S. on 
Tuesday, May G.:h, regarding the fatal shooting two days earlier of 20-year-old 
Angelo Nobrega by Police Detective Kevin Boyd. Part of the release was carried on 
the 11:00 p.m. ncv/scast of C. H.F.I. Radio, and reference was made to it in the 
May 7th issues of the Telegram and the Toronto Star.

REVcLUTioN umimw 

by F. Paul Fromm 

In mid-March, when the Farkdale residents raised their noisy 
cry against the "right-wing" filni , "Revolution Underway" we 
determined immediately to obtain it for our March meeting. 
The Metropolitan Toronto Police were willing to lend it free of 
charge. However, an order from Police Chief Mackey, origin- 
ating with Judge CO. Bick, intervened. This order restricted 
showing to police groups only. Our March meeting had to do 
without "Revolution Underway", 
In the meantime, cop-hater Ron Haggart was devoting three columns to lamb- 
asting the film. The Globe and Mail had editorially jumped aboard the witch- 
hunters' bandwagon. The Council of the Edmund Burke Society had meanwhile tele- 
phoned Searcy, Arkamjas, Member Louis de Boer, had seen "Revolution" and 
recommended it highly. Accordingly, we decided to rent it for a month. The 
National Education Ehrogram was pleased to hear of us and, as we were going to 
defend and promote the film, we got it at a very reasonable rate. To inform 
Torontonians of our view that the film was not "racist" and to initiate a backlash 
of defiance against the powerful, back-room arm-twisters, whom police officials 
admitted were putting tremendous pressure on them, we issued the following press 
statement on April 10: 

"The EDMUND BURKE SOCIETY wishes to state Its unqualified support for the 
Metropolitan Toronto Police in their policy of using tae film. Revolution Underway , 
for police training and for public information. 

"We deplore the paranoia and hysteria and the massive press assault on the 
Judgment of the Toronto Police force. 

"The film, 'Revolution Underway', is not racist; it is not put out by the John 
Birch Society, as one critic implied. To complain that the film portrays rioters and 
looters as Negroes, and therefore, that the film is defamatory of the Black community, 
is absurd. Those involved in the riots were, in fact, Negroes. Who would the 
hastily-formed coalition of critics and censors have us believe they were, Eskimos?

by the Friends Of Rhodesia Association, 


The Rhodesian unUateral declaration of independence of NovemW Uth, 1965 
reversed the "winds of change" sweeping over Africa, The previous decade had seen 
various European powers beating a hasty retreat from the African continent that they 
had caused to emerge from its original primitive environment in a few short generations. 
Uncritical acceptance was widely given to the idea that "nationallsmr" and "majority 
rule" represented the wave of the future in Africa and that no place existed inr the 
Europeans who had found the continent a jungle and wasteland and developed it vyifh 
their initiative and enterprise. - 

" Ma jority rule" , a slogan used often in the condemnation of Rhodesia as well 
as the Republic of South Africa and Portugal, does not exist in most of the black 
African states advocating its implementation in southern Africa. All too often, the 
democratic government of a newly-independent African state left behind by the depart- 
ing European power dissolves into a "one-party democracy" after the first election, 
the party losing the election being outlawed in the interests of "national security" and 
"progress", . . , . 

Elections have never been held at aU in many "majority rule" states, as military 
juntas have eliminated the need for them. Press censorship is taken for granted. 
Members of minority tribes are hounded and restricted, (e.g. the Barotse in Zambia, 
the Baganda In Uganda, and the Kamba and Luo in Kenya), particularly when they 
support the party out of office. Attempts are made in some instances at genocide 
(e.g. Nigeria and the Sudan); Lest it be said that insufficient time has been given 
the black Afrlcaiv states to prove themselves, Liberia has had over 120 years to get 
over her "teething pains", with little, if any, sign of any dynamic approach to 
development in sight. 

How is It then that Rhodesia can be condenined for declining immediate "majority 
rule" and opting instead to continue with their present system of government? The 
fact of the matter is that Africans enjoy greater political rights ax^ religious freedom 
in Rhodesia, the Republic of South Africa, and the Portuguese Ov|5irseas Provinces \n 
Africa (Angola, Mozambique) than in most African countries wherf "majority rule" and 
"one man, one vote democracy" prevail. In Rhodesia, the main concern of the govern- 
ment is the maintenance of civilized standards for the good of ail. There exists the 
determination to ensure that every tadividual, regardless of race, shall be able to 
advance economically and politically to the fullest extent, according to his merit and 
ability. It is up to the individual to demonstrate his merit by acquiring the necessary 
standards fc^ the franchise, 

,?iu:-o.;:' --» Av; '■■ » '"-*■.■'."•••"■■•■■-•'"•" '^-^ '•'•■ ■ 

In comparison with many black African states, Rhodesia haf only an infinitesimal 
number of political detainees. Far ^om being a ' ppilce state", Rhodesia has oqe of 
the lowest police-per-capita ratios in the world. The police, most of whom are 
Africans, do not be^ arms. Co-operation and mutual respect are the basis for 
progress. Tribal authority is retained to further ensure the maintenance of order. 
Consequently, the dignity and security of the average African is at a far higher level 
in southern Africa than anywhere else on the African continent, Pespite all of this, 
the nations of »outh^n Africa, Rhodesia in particular, are labeUed as being "racialist'* 
and "threats to peace" . However, the confidence of the African population in the 
present Rhodesian administration is clearly demonstrated by thetptal failure of the 
communist-trained and equipped terrorists infiltrated into th« country from Zambia to 
enlist the eld of the local inhabitants . ^ -. .„■ -. 

Those who know Africa and understand its complex human problems foresaw the 
tragedies in many of the black African states. No amount of thecry can justify what 
has happened and what continues to happen in Africa. The West must eventually 
realize how the African has oeen duped and tricked out of his birthright. Instead of 
forging ahead with those who brought Africa to the threshold of civilization, he has 
been put beck generations by those who believe that Vvestem democracy can be 
transplanted Into primitive societies.

Last November (1S68), Marc ZwelUng , reported In the TELEGRAM that "A maj-r 
. contraction of the Canadian publishing industry is certain if the Govemment proceeds 
with its whopping postal rate increases scheduled for next April, The rate increases 
could affect millions of readers and possibly the jobs of the men who cut the trees for 
., paper pulp . More than 100 small magazines and a score of small daily newspapers 
could die under the knife of staggering postage costs." 

The knife has been plunged: the new rates are in effect, leaving the debris 
of ruined small publications, which could not sustain the increased costs, in their 
wake. Loss of 2nd class mailing privileges Is also forcing many "small" puhllcations 
to cut back drastically, Majoi" victims Include labour, community, religious, and 
anti-Communist publications. The big commercial dallies, of course, are able to 
^"absorb" the Increased cost, and began as early as last year to raise their news stand 
prices end advertising rates, in anticipation of the postage hikes. Unlike small 
periodicals, they are not nearly so dependent upon the mails fcr their circulation, 
anyway, • . • 

Among those facing extinction by these outrageous increases are those 
periodicals which serve racial mlncarltles In their own languages, including the author- 
itative Czech-language weekly, J^OVY DO MOV ^ and the Ukrainian-language weekly, 
PROGRESS . The situation was serious enough for the Canadian Ethnic Press Assoc- 
iation to present Propaganda Minister Eyic Kierans ("What does matter is that Canada 
Itself can make a distinctive contribution to furthering peace by helping the only inter- 
national organization that really devotes itself to It: the United Nations",) with a 
brief In which it was pbinted out that "None of the ethnic press of Canada has been 
able to build up reserves to be drawn upon in times of special need. Profits have 
always been small, in scm&c^ses non-existent,,. Staffs are often underpaid..." 
Even Fl&her & CrowQ , who' still smear as "scurrilous" anyone who alludes to the 
leftlsh record of Pierre-Elliott Trudeau ("The policy of the national party will thus be 
the result of a compromise between the most and the least advanced socialist thinking ', 
in various parts of Canada"), whether past or present, apparently, were able to evince 
a wistful sigh at this brutal blow to freedom of communication in Canada: "there is a 
plaintive, and perhaps despairing note In the thought that the Canadian voices which 
are neither English nor French are to be silenced or muted,,*" Indeed,' (Cf, 
TELEGRAM , April 22, 1969). , 


However, the outlook is rather more rosy if you are publishing obscenity, or 
Stalinist propaganda. Among periodicals not to be inconvenienced by the newly hiked 
rates are the Vancouver hippie rag, GEORGIA STRAIGHT . and such propaganda publi- 
cations a& the Vancouver PACIFIC TRIBUNE . THE CANADIAN TRIBUNE . SCAN magazine, 
and, of course, the Party's authoritative pxirveyor of the Party line, THE WORLD 
MARXIST REVIEW . We cannot bring ourselves to believe (pace Fisher & Crowe) that 
this discrimination against loyal, tax-paying citizens and in favour of the leftwing 
totalltarlans in our country is merely coincidence. After all, this is not the only 
means the Government is employing to subsidize, with our money, the fifth columnists 
operating in our country. 

Freedom is a necessary, precious condition for a fully human life. Freedom of 
discussion, information, and communication is the indispensable minimum for a free 
and open society. The Edmund Burke Society warned last year of the dang^s posed 
by the paternal proclivities of the Trudeau gang, and as the months pass, the dismal 
record of the Trudeau dictatorship continues to vindicate those warnings. In oQr 
July-August issue last year. Chairman D.C. Andrews commented that "Those f6ars (re 
Mr, Ttudeau's 'antidemocratic reflexes') will scarcely be allayed by the announcement 
that EJric Kierans is being groomed to head a new Ministry, dealing with Commuhication^ 
and a new Department of Information, So it seems that for the first time in ou r history^ 
we aye to have a Ministry of Propaganda . What this bodes for our freedom of the press 
remains to be seen." 

Not any more, it doesn'tl The new postal rates deal a major blow to a host of 
small publications, among whom are to be found the really serious expressions of 

Independent dissent against Trudeaucracy. The major commerciai dailies, most of 
whom are not "unmanageable", from Trudeau's point of view, are quite well able to 
survive and carry on, 


If anyone thinks we are being unduly melodramatic in describing Kldrans as a 
"Propaganda Minister", we cite the evidence of Peter Newman , certified Trudeauvnlk • 
and new editor of the DAILY STAfi. who reported an interview with Kierans (he's always 
been a leftwinger") last December 17th: "Kierans visualizes (his communications , 
department) as being concerned with the total information system of the whole counixy -^ 
the transmission and reception of ideas and Information whether betvyeen people by 
telephone or between computers through data banks or between the sky and the ground 
via satellites,.." The total Information system of the whol e countr/ . . . the stuff of 
which Orwellian nightmares are made , isn't it? But this is Canada, in the first 
year of Trudeau's "Just Society" ,' 

"Freedom of speech and press are the strongest safeguards against a dictatdr- 
ship," writes General Curtis E. LeMav in his book, AMERICA IS IN DANGER. 
"History illustrates", he goes on, "that the first act of a dictator is to distort and 
suppress the news. Free speech and press permit the truth to be aired and opposing 
opinions to be expressed. Dictatorship cannot survive for long when national issues 
are freely debated in public .,.".. 

Would it be "scurrilous", we wonder, to suggest that possioly Citizen Trudeau 
appointed Kierans Post-MIaster General precisely to effect this crushing olow to the 
small and independent periodical press? It certainly cannot be any capacity he might 
have to bring a little efficiency into our postal service which got him the job'. The 
appointment was known to be a temporary one, and that his big ministerial bag was 
going to be, . .communications. We now know what he considers to be the terms of 
reference of his new ministry: the total information system of the whole country. 
We do not intend to be deterred by thfe Irrational smears of Messrs. Fisher & Crowe 
in the face of the facts; we believe in the old Chinese proverb, according to which, 
"He who does not bellow the truth when he knows the truth, makes himself the 
accomplice of liars and forgers." Freedom of the press is under a major attack in

Progress can be realized only in an atniosphCTe of law and order. Democracy 
in Africa can only be achieved gradually through education and training in democratic 
traditions. Consequently, far more is done in Rhodesia in the field of African 
education than in any other African state, with the exception of the Republic of , ,,.; 
South Africa. Rhodesia cannot abdicate her responsibility to her African citizens, 
the majority of whom have no concept of voting procedures. Western democracy 
would only destroy thefr present representation and dismantle their fraditlonal system 
of tribal authority. 

Rhodesia stands on her record. Only a single generation ago, the African . . 
people were completely primitive, knowing nothing of the wheel and having no written 
language. Today, although tribalism and witchcraft are still sfrong beneath the 
veneer of civilization, the African in Rhodesia has advanced significantly to take 
his place in the 20th century. In Rhodesia, as in the other nations in southern 
Africa, the Swahili expressions "uhuru" and "harambee", meaning "freedom" and 
"let us all pull together" respectively, are far more applicable there than in black 
Africa where they are used with much reckless and unjustified abandon.

March was anarchist month in Montreal as the usual assorted ccjlomer- 
ation of leftists, vandals and ev^n members of the do-^-goodi.ig Company of \.:>ung 
Caiiadians got into the many fifing of _dis •; 

Fortunately for the" city/ the city's adept police department took on all 
comers with an adroit hand, particularly , that massive march by separatists and

The CYC dipped into what' Itdaikd'Vprae community splilt when it goaded 
a group of citizens to disrupt a visit by Prime Minister Trudeau to an urban renewal . 
projecto The residents of the project were protesting what they called too-high rents , 
and the CYC said this is the type of worl^ the company does in helping the poor gain 
theirrights, ,_ . .,_;:, ,.., , ...... ..■....■-.- ... 

The CVC also led disruptive tactics into a Montreal City Council meeting 
which was considering the rent scales for the tenants of the renewal project. J^Vhen 
Lucien Saulnier. the chairman of the Council's executive committee, denounced the 
dlsniption of the city business, the CYC charged that he preferred "witch-hunting and 
inventive communists and professional agitators" to dealing witb,?erious problems at 
hand. ,..■,.-. -,.:;., ■■■ - •■ ....-■-•• — — • ■ - 

The' chairman had stated earlier that measures shoujd. be taken against; 
professional agitators witlj; leftist leanings., - ,^ i 

" The CYC also charged that the lyiontr^al police- were spending more time 
infiltrating ciUzens' groups and "taking down licence numbers of thos who attended 
the city council meeting" than in wa^fing war on organized crime , 

On that McGill march, organized by the leftist Ligue pour 1' integration 

scolaire (League for school integration meaning taKe-over) . it was generally 

agreed that it was fairly peaceful, though several participants iyied to make things 
hot for the police by hurling firebombs, rocks and placards at tl^em. 

Police Director Jean-Paul GUbert cited his men for an excellent job 
performed in checking any serious untoward incident in the march, which, 1"^^^"^^"^' 
was preceded with so much pubUcity,that even the three major.U.S. networks showed 
up to cover events . ,, ..-...■.: .v -^ > • ■ -• '- " 

Director Gilbert said 'there was a certain foreign influence in the prepar- 
ation of the march which purportedly tried to point out that McaOl was needed lex 
future French high school graduates who are increasing. alarmingly in numbers. He 
said this foreign influence came in the form of literature. But he, also stressed that 
professional agitators had a strong hand in the demondtration. 

Stanley Gray, the self-admitted M.arxist whom.lylcGm is trying to oust 
for his disruption of McGill 's senate meetings,, caUed the nparch a "success though 
he did not spell out in what way. He also praised the police fpr their Patience, 
but couldn't resist singling, out gome incidents, of what he called police brutality . 

Two Incidents with a more international .flavor also took place here during 
celebrations of Greek Independence day. Leftists, supporting the ousted govern- 
ment of Premier George Papandreou, descended on their fellow countrymen in cere- 
monies in downtown Montreal, calling them fascists, freedom oppressors and so on. 

The scene was repeated a week later at, of all places, the St. George 
Greek Orthodox Cathedral, where pro-Pa pandreou factions clashed with supporters 
of the present government. Police arrested several from both sides, charging them 
with disturbing the peace and disrupting a church service.

On April 21st, Pierre- Elliott Trudeau ("for a time, the situation of the left*in 
Canada will not oe cut and dried") gave an interview to the TELEGRAM and to the 
Toronto CTV Channel, CFTO, in which he ruminated on the first year of his "Just 
Society". "I suppose", he said, "one has to be in the wheelhouse to see what shifts 
are taking place. I know that we have spun the wheel and I know the rudder is begin- 
ning to press against the waves and I know the ship is beginning to straighten her 
course. Perhaps the observe r on the deck smoking his pioe sees the horizon much 
as it was and doesn't realiz e it. but perhaps he will find himself disembarking at a 
different island tha n the one he thought he was sailing for." 'Which is perhaps the 
most explicit confession of Fabian skullduggery we are ever likely to encounter. 

• "Though confident that there is no one to stop him, " commented Lubor Zink , 
"the Prime Minister is careful not to disclose his destination quite openly at this 
stage of the journey, because his passengers could get alarmed and conceiva-^ly 
protest against having been tricked into a voyage they never intended to take." And 
trickery, of course, is the name of the Fabian game. 


While pursuing a policy of leftist Duplessisme at home ( Maurice Duplessis 
never ran a more "tight ship" in the Ouebec Legislature than Trudeau does in the 
House of Commons) Trudeau's "destination" in terms of our foreign policy was clearly 
pinpointed by "Big Thunder" Stanfield when he told the House on April 23rd that 
Trudeau's "re-a-lentation" of our policy was rooted in "two ideas most Canadians 
long ago rejected: isolationism and continentalism" . (On this occasion, Stanfield 
waxed witty: "The Prime Minister said in V/ashington he would not enjoy sleeping - 
with an elephant. I cannot imagine why he would want to marry an elephant." 
Trudeau, however, said nothing about marriage; fornication of consenting adults in. 
private, soon to be legalized in the Trudeau Amendments to the Criminal Code, can 
no doubt be stretched to cover intimate relations with licentious elephants, no doubt 
on the principle that the State has no place in the stables of the nationi ) ■ >:: . , ■- 

According to Peter V/ard' s report to the TELEGRAM (April 24th) Trudeau defended 
his pulling us out of NATO (and let's not kid ourselves, that is what is happening) on 
the grounds that "Canada's foreign policy should be shaped to keep the nuclear arms 
stalemate in balance..." This statement of policy is deceptively cunning. In tlie 
first place, it prolongs the nuclear fear-mongering by means of which dedicated 
collaborationists .have for years prevented "Western governments from taking even 
minimally consistent anti-Communist positions. It assumes that a nuclear stalemate 
does in fact exist, which is not the case; at the moment the balance is in favour of 
the enemy, with the increasing danger of a nuclear Pearl Harbour. More fundament- 
ally, at the heart of such a policy lies the tacit acceptance of the permanence of 
Communist conquests (and the subsequent writing-off of the enslaved nations of 
Europe and Asia), and assures the Red warlords that no oiostacles will be placed in 
the path of their non-nuclear conquest in Vietnam, the Middle East, or anywhere else 
they may choose. Obviously, such a policy militates against collective security to 
stem the tide of Red aggression anywhere. No wonder Aaron Einfrank w as aole to 
report to the TELEGRAM from Moscow that the Kremlin received the news with 
"understanda..^le approval" (Cf. TELEGRAM, April 7th) . ■ ,-/ 

-'. ■■ - 

If Trudeau was honest, literally, in such a statement of policy, he would durely 
seek to restore the so-called nuclear stalemate by cooperating with the USA in the 
erection of an effective, joint Canadian-American Anti-Ballistic Missile defence 
system, with bases in our Arctic regions to insure that no invading Marxist missiles 
would be intercepted over Canadian territory. The PM, however, has made it 
abundantly clear that he is "not interested ih protecting a few Canadiancities if this 
means we will be consenting to a kind of policy which we think is dangerous to the 
world". In other words, provision for continental defence is "dangerous to the world".

(continued from page S ) 

The Whole point of the film, far from equating Negroes with rioting, is to warn all 
citizens of the massive propaganda that is being aimed at the Negro community This 
propaganda exploits and exaggerates existing grievances and creates phony new ones 
It IS more than coincidental that the key propagandists for Negro revolution are comm- 
unist-oriented and make frequent trips behind the Iron Curtain and to Cuba - men like 

Stokely Carmichael. This same Stokely 
Carmichael spoke at a violently racist. Black 
Writers' Conference last fall at Sir George 
Williams University and gloated: 'When the 
black revolution comes to America, Canadians 
won't buy any reprieve from us. ' 

"It is precisely because selfish men are 
seeking to manipulate hot-heads in the Negro 
community for their own ends that this film is 
so vital. The EDMUND BURKE SOCIETY un- 
ashamedly intends to show 'Revolution Underway' 
to the public . We hope to alert Canadians , in 
Toronto and Montreal, and especially to warn 
our growing community of Negro citizens, of 
the organized attempt by communist-financed 
demagogues to disrupt society and to use the 
Negro as cannon-fodder (just as computer- 
burning student radicals are being used) to 
spread disorder, which can only serve the ends 
of the enemies of freedom and of our way of 
life. After all, what have the vast majority 
of responsible, law-abiding Negro citizens 
profited from the riots? The rioters destroy 

- 16 - 
Negro homes and dwellings and burn stores serving the Black community. Who does 
this hurt? Negro writer, Louis Lomax has denounced the communist-led Black revol- 
utionaries as a movement which 'tolerates no dissent. In the interest of "the move- 
ment you are expected to suspend logic and believe the most fantastic charges, the 
most twisted analyses. . .1 cannot believe that middle-class Negroes who have strugg- 
led against VVhite racism for so long will barter the positions they now hold for black 
fascism. (Toronto TRlftqrapn ^ apni in, lofn ) 

.u, "2^^ sinister forces in our city are not the police, but those who wish to censor 
this film, who wish to close their eyes to the very real problem of communist-aided 
violence; who wish to hide, instead, behind smear-words like 'racist' and 'right- 
wing. ■ As a training film, 'Revolution Underway', is excellent for making the police 
cadet sensitive to the special problems of the Negro community and to the dangers 
threatening this community, .... . .-•.*■*•■' 


"The EDMUND BURKE SOCIETY Intends to d^|y the efforts of those who would 
censor and smear discussion of the very real and manifest menace to North America's 
Negro communities. We hope that the efforts to intimidate our police likewise fail " 

That very afternoon several associates accompanied me to Toronto International 
Airport to pick up the film and to see it through Customs. There, we were treated to 
a typical show of government harassment and bureaucratic pettyjogging. A sent us 
to B tor a form and he sent us to C who didn't know how to assess duty on the film 
and he sent us to D who, in turn, consulted with E and F. D wanted $34.00 duty on 
a film rented at 1/5 that price. We described this film as educational and explained 
that we were ac«jj-j to show it to university students (among others). No amount of 
arguing would prevail. As it was closing time, we left and nex{ day several other 
members returned, p^id the ransom and, ajt^ast, the film was ours. We now took 
our receipt of payment and custom's releafe slip from D half a block away to A who 
got the film for us. One of our associates was surprized to learn that there are full- 
time people, known as customs brokers, whose work consists solely of guiding goods 
through the labyrinth of regulations and red tape and haggling with the bureaucrats. 
ll:.;s incident vividly impressed us with the need for drastically reducing government 
inLerference and harassment of the business of our country. 

April 10, the day we received the film, the police gopy was publicly hacked to 
pieces by the politicians. The onus was now on us to keep the channels of commun- 
ication and the free expression of opinion open. We were willing to stand behind this 
film, advertize, and show it publicly. We have been doing this ever since with the 
turn which we have since purchased. 

*u J^^^^^' ^F^^^ ^^ ^^"^ °^ statement and intent to show the film mentioned in both 
the Telegram (page 27) and the Toronto Star (pages 4 and 32) . The Star said of Jeff 
Goodall's statement: "He described his society as rlght-^wing but said It was not 
extremist, racist, anti-semitic, or fascist." (page 4).

So the Black Liberation Front of Canada "hae called for minority 
groups and 'progressive people' to unite In a campaign for the establish- 
ment of a civilian review board to oversee the behaviour of the police 
department." ( TORONTO STAR , July 26, 1969, page 11 ). One might expect 
that this latest demand, made at radical Rochdale College, by the self- 
styled Black liberators would be Ignored by the press. But, since this 
Is the age of concerted attacks on the police. It might be well to delve 
Into a few facts, both about the demand Itself and about the Black 
Liberation Front. 

To begin with, who or what Is the Black Liberation 'Front' 
fronting for*? Let's start with Jose Garcia, Identified as "secretary 
of the Central Committee of the Black Liberation Front" (. GLOBE AND 
MAIL , June 15, 1969, page 5), which musters a "fluctuating membership 
oTTe to 25" ( GLOBE AND MAIL, July 28, 1969, page 5). Mr. Garcia is 
spokesman for their latest demands. Back in November 1967, Mr. Garcia 
was listed as a member and organizer for another 'front', namely ^^the 
Canadians for the National Liberation Front, whose programme is "support 
the N.L.P." — the communist Vletcong of South Vietnam! 

More recently, the ubiquitous Mr. Garcia was listed as a sponsor 
of May Day Rally '69, held on May 1, at the College of Education. 
Sharing the dubious distinction of sponsoring this event were Bruce 
Magnuson, Canadian Communist Party, Norm Brudy, Metro Communist Partyj 
and John Riddell, League for Socialist Action. 

A further clue to the nature of the Black Liberation Front 
emerges from an item in the TORONTO TELEGRAM of April 12, I969 (page 3): 
"A Negro youth in a black beret was shouted down last night when he 
asked the moderator at a symposium on the future of blacks in Canada 
why V/hites were allowed into the meeting. . .The youth wouldn't identify 
himself — but said he was an African. He walked from the room with 
his arm around Jan Carew, a Toronto novelist and member of the new 
Black Liberation Front of Canada ... Mr. Carew said he is a revolutionl s t 
and plans to destroy the White imperialists..." Pretty intolerant 
company Mr, Garcia keeps, we would sayl 

The EDMUND BURKE SOCIETY endorses entirely East York Mayor 
True Davidson's doubts whether the Black Liberation Front is "a bona 
fide organization or an activist organization — an organization, if 
I may say so, devoted to desruptlon"^.' ( GLOBE AND MAIL , June 15, 1969 
page 5). 

Reliable sources report that the "volunteer committee of 25 — 
mostly white — (who have ) begun a campaign for the Black Liberation 
Front of Canada to establish a citizens review board overseeing police 
activities" ( TORONTO STAR , July 28, 1969, page 17 ) are mostly TrotskyitesJ 

In light of this documentation, we strongly suggest that this 
latest attack on our police be viewed in the light of similar attacks 
by the far left on the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force. After every 
Vietnam 'peace' demonstration the cry goes up "police brutality", Paul 
Macrae, far-leftist, editor of the University of Toronto's VARSITY 
(reprinted in the November BULLETIN of the Canadians For The National 
Liberation Front) derisively termed the Metro Police "pigs". 

The Black Liberation Front, since June, has been hammering away 
at the Toronto Police. They charge police brutality and police provo- 
cation. As yet, however, they have been extremely vague with details. 
With Metro Chairman William Allen, we challenge them to be specific — 
what brutality, when, where, by whom etc? Until specific Instances are 
brought forward, we consider the wild charges and the demands for a 
civilian review board malicious far-left propaganda. 

We have already elected officials supervixlng the police. 
Experience in the United States shows that the demand for civilian 
review boards go hand in hand with bitter physical attacks on and 
denxxnciations of the thin blue line between order and anarchy. A 
civilian review board is a ploy to harrass, disarm, and shackle the 
police in the performance of their duty. The EDMUND BURKE SOCIETY 
unequivocally opposes the establishment of a civilian review board and 
wishes to express its warmest endorsement of the fine performance of 
Metro's Police force. As representatives of a fair number of ethnic groups- 
Latvian, Estonian, Serbian etc. we entirely reject and deny the charge of 

We will continue to 

police discrimination against minority groups, 
support our local police.

The "religious pacifism" of many of the U.S. Draft Dodgers 
currently hiding out in Canada (many of them student activists on our 
University campuses) is not only phoney, but they are of little value 
to Canada as citizens or patriots. 

One typical letter to the Editor in The Vancouver Sun recently 
clearly revealed this by way of a defence of the draft dodger based on 
man's right not to defend his country if he didn't happen to believe 
In that country's system of government.' By the same token, he outlined 
how it was a good thing" to fight for something one did believe in - 
(.citing the Black Panther "Liberation" front in the UT^A. ) which 
Intended to liberate' us from the nasty old capitalistic free enterprise 
systeml ^ 

,_ _^ This peculiar standard of "patriotism" which finds many of our 
peace groups supporting the U.S. draft dodger (along with the Viet 
Kong. ) reminds me of another man who abhored violence and how he handled 
the situation. John Todd, who, back in 1844 was in charge of the 
Hudson's Bay Trading Post at Port Kamloops found himself having to cope 
With an Indian uprising while the soldiers of the Port were away getting 

Todd promptly sent his wife and family into the woods to hide, 
then rode out to the gathering Shuswap waving avlaloof vaccine and 
bellowing that someone had brought smallpox in from Walla Walla.' Knowing 
the dread disease and the value ofthe vaccine,. €fie Indians crowded 
round to be vaccinated and complied with Todd's request that they walk 
around with their vaccinated arm in the air 

Needless to say, by the time the soldiers returned 
? 3 9"«^^"<3ian could move his right arm and the ambush was 

iw .?i^?^' '^^^ ^°^^^ °^ ^^^^ t^^e story perhaps points 
the mildest of men must sometimes stand up to be counted - 
the good order of society. Todd could have weaseled hims 
his reBponslbllity with a lot of semantics about "rights" 
individual or group. Had Canada's early pioneers been of 
of some U.S. draft dodgers and "peace" fronts, this land w 
been settled or developed. No, don't ask me to bleed for 
draft dodger. I'm too busy bleeding for the men fighting 
freedom in Vietnam.

"Beware that you do not lose the substance by 
grasping at the shadow." Aesop FABLES , "The 
Dog and the Shadow" 

4^u ^ ^^®" ^ ^^^^^ ^ ^^^ ^^S^* l^Sht can cast a giant shadow. Nearly 
without exception, for the past year, Canadians, especially Torontonlans, 
have been barraged by an undiluted storm of pro-boycott reports about 
Cesar Chavez and his attempt to organize California's grape-pickers. 

Toronto witnessed the old leftist organizational ploy operating, 
as agitation built for a boycott of California grapes. Uninformed 
local clergymen lent their names to marches and committees supporting 
the boycott. As with the Vietnam protests, the leftist pattern was 
the same;- couch the issue in liberal rhetoric about freedom from want; 
obtain endorsements on the basis of this rhetoric from an apparently 
broad-based selection of clergymen, union leaders, and politicians. 

Local opinion-makers in the press made the boycott an acceptable 
humanitarisn cause. It gained the moral suppor'. of N.D.P, 'er Mayor 
Dennison and the Toronto City Council. The radical Students' Admin- 
istrative Corincil of the University of Toronto supported, both verbally 
and ilnanclally, pro-boycott groups. Clergymen endorsing the boycott 
^^2-^^l^f "^v-^^- .^^^^^°^^ Elliot (Metro United Church), Pr. Arthur Brown 
tSt. Michael's and All Angels Anglican Church), Fr. Ed, Bader, C.S.P., 
Director of the Catholic Information Centre, and Rabbi Michael Stroh 
iHoly Blossom Temple), 

By December, Loblaws and Steinbergs had given the Boycott some 
prestige. Both these stores placed small signs near their fruit 
counters announcing that, while they sympathized with the boycott, they 
would stixj. carry California grapes and let the customer Judge for 
himself. " ° 

^f T^ -, f^^^^^y saw the pro-boycott forces organizing Saturday picketing 
SL?°T ^? Supermarkets in attempts to force them to Join the boycott. 
«^!^i, "^ ^!^-^^ capitulated several weeks ago. A Dominion spokesman 
announced and, later, mysteriously retracted a statement that his company 
had been threatened with volence by union goons, 

The writer was able to document two other incidents of harrass- 
ment in Toronto. A Dominion store manager in North Toronto reported 
i!^ ^-E^^^?^^.^^?^ ^^ ^^^ ^^^"^ visited by several "Black Panthers", who 
had threatened him with everything short of violence, if he did not re- 

«?iJ ^o^o^rS^^ ^r°!r.''i^ shelves, A manager of a store in Scarborough 
also reported a visit from the grim-faced Panthers. 

«nr! M=in^^® bubble burst on Friday, June 13, 1969. The TereHtoGlobe 

and Mall reported; Two vocal T(wonto supporters of a boycott ot 

California gra^jes have reversed their stand after a four-day visit to 
the vineyards. Rev. James McDonald of Don Mills United Church 
insisted: I absolutely would buy California grapes tomorrow. "Michael 
O'Meara, news editor of the Canadian Register ta Catholic weekly), 
regretted his poor Journalism in a story he had written for the Register 
M^n n!?^ ^S^n/^^S!rS^°'^^^^ ^°^ paying poverty-level wages. Both Rev. — 
McDonald and Mr. O'Meara observed that the "boycott is belAg used to 
force grape growers to recogrize an employees' union few grape pi-; 


want." Our fllm^ Showbiz In the StreetSj confirms this: "At stake In 
this drama is not really wages or hours, but control of the nations food 
supply. The threat of a strike during harvest la sheer blackmail and 
a potential knife In America's Jugular vein," Mr, O'Meara, the Globe 
and Mall reported, said: "Some workers felt they were being used as 
pawns by Chavez' supporters. If the union, backed with $35,000.00 
monthly from the United Auto Workers and the A.P.L.-C.I.O., wins In 
California, then the A.P.L. will be able to be the bargaining agent 
for all U,S, farm workers. Such a success would contribute about 
$84 million a month In members' dues to A.P.L. coffers." Perhaps, not 
unsurprlzlngly, the Ad Hoc Committee for Boycott California Grapes Day 
works out of Room 505, 15 Gervals Drive, Don Mills — the headquarters 
of the A.P.L. -C.I.O., 182 Labour Council of Metropolitan Toronto and 
the United Farm Workers. 

Rev, McDonald and Mr. O'Meara are the first important defectors 
from the group of humanitarians lurfed by emotionalism about starving 
children into support for the grape-boycott. 

The local press is guilty of blatant bias or highly unjournal- 
Istic credulity. The Fourteenth Report of the Senate Un-American 
Activities Subcommittee of the California Senate 919b7 ) devotes 70 
pages of documented text to Cesar Chavez and the Delano Grape Strike. 
It probes extensively the surprising number of communists in the boy- 
cott movement. Chavez' attorney, Alexander Hoffman, the report 
discovered, has made little attempt to hide his Marxist convictions. 
Showbiz in the Streets reports: Chavez's secretary is Donna Sue Haber, 
a national foionder of the communist W.E.B. Du Bois Clubs." Another 
organizer, Luis Miguel Valdez, "was sent to Cuba in 1964 by the communist 
Progressive Labour Party',' a Marxist group. The Senate report concluded 
(page 25): "It is most interesting to note that among this group of 
strategists considering the fate of the farmworkers, none were actually 
farmworkers. Chavez, as we have stated, was an organizer of the 
community Service Organizer before he established the N.P.W.A," Like 
so many leftist agitators, the boycott leaders will do anything for 
the working man but become one. 

The Senate report was by no means the only report ctttical of 
Chavez' "huelga" (strike). Somehow our local Jouraallsts never saw 
or never reported lengthy articles in Human Events , National Review 
and American Opinion - reports like those of Ralph de Toledano and 
Murray Norris in Human Events (October 9, 1968, page 9)* Grape-pickers 
told de Toledano that Chavez' gang hfad threatened them. Norris wrote: 
Violence has marked this (union) recruiting at times and has become 
so rampant that wives of the farm workers formed a group knovjn as 
Mothers Against Chavez to make their plight known. They told of a 
mother of three being beaten and left on one of Delano's main streets... 
As the assailants left her lying bloody in the street, they warned that 
it would be worse next time if her husband didn't quit working in the 
vineyards." These are the facts we never hear. 

Out of 10,000 workers only 500 have Joined Chavez' union 
(U.P.W.O.C.) after 3 years of recruitment. Not exactly a resounding 
endorsement for Chavez' leadership: 

McDonald and O'Meara reported little evidence of the squalid 
living conditions, allegations which were used extensively by local 
organizers to beguile horrified humanitarians. Indeed, Mr. McDonald 
learned that many workers could buy their own homes (more than can be 
said for- many Torontonians ). Many are making $5,000 a year or more 
and oppose having a union that would limit their working and money- 
making hours. . 

The California report gives the following corroboration in a 
statement by Jack Pandol: "The average wage paid pickers during the 
1965 harvest was more than $1.80 an hour. Some growers, like Schenley 
Industries paid as high as $2.42 an hour. In addition, there are 
numerous fringe benefits such as housing facilities, camp cooks, 
transportation, etc., that are provided by the growers." (page 155). 

A national campaign by workers who oppose Chavez' union urged 
Americans in advertisements not to boycott grapes and throw them out 
of work. 

Thus, massively repudiated by the workers he Is supposedly 
leading, CViavez and his Toronto boycott leaders are at last being 

subjected to 
the pro-boyc 
Lamport and 
Edmund Burke 
day period, 
lots and dla 
olnce then, 
Chavez", In 
In the Stree 

:he glarl^i.; light of fact. Previously, by adrnlssion of 
ott forces, the only local opponents were Controller Allan 
the conservative Edmund Burke Society. In December, the 

Society decided to confront the boycott forces. In a ten- 
we distributed 8,000 pamphlets In 45 supermarket parking 
cussed the California Senate repQrt with store managers. 
we have advertized our pamphlet, "The Sour Grapes of Cesar 
the three Toronto papers and have shown the film Show Biz 
ts extensively In Toronto, 

The nagging question remains, though: what Is wrong with the 
research and critical powers of the dally press? Had the boycott been 
organized by the White Citizens Council and been- endorsed by George 
Wallace and Ronald Regan, the same press would have lost no time In 
revealing 'racist background', 'McCarthyite witch-hunting' etc.. In the 
ranks of this latest 'rightist front'. 

In concrete terms, the limited progress of the boycott in Toronto 
and the none-too-early revelations of O'Meara and McDonald bear out 
Edmund Burke's oft' quoted dictum: "The only thing necessary for the 
triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." ; or, I might add, to 
do something knowing nothing . 

*** *** **» *#* 

At the time of Paul Hellver' s resignation from the Trudeau Polltbureau, on the 
grounds that the administration was doing nothing about the housing crisis, Lubon Zink 
hinted that Hellyer had a second reason which he, (Hellyer) was reluctant to divulge: 
the defeatist orientation of our foreign and defence policies. Then, last July, Douglas 
fisher and Harry Crowe intimated in their column that, according to an unnamed "close 
friend" of Hellyer's, the real "sedond major reason" for Hellyer's cop-out was that he 
had discovered "that the Prime Minister is a socialist" (so what else is new?). "We 
wish he'd give a speech or two on this discovery", commented Fisher & Crowe, "There 
are some indications that Mr. Trudeau may be heading in defence and foreign policy 
along lines parallel to what the New Democrats have advocated in these fields", and 
they ask, "But where are the indicators in domestic policies? " 

Fisher & Crowe twit Hellyer for tardily having had "the misfortune to get the flu, 
to be forced to bed and to a reading of the Trude^.u book." If, at this late date, Fisher 
& Crowe are still looking fcr "Indicators" of Trudeau's social communism end on the 
domestic scene, then perhaps they too would be well-advised to go to bed with Trudeau's 
Kampf, with or without the flu. They might come to reflect on the elementary truism 
that with a "doctrinaire socialist" such as Piene- Elliott Trudeau ("freeing consciences 
buttlied by a clericalized and obscurantist Church"), statism is less a matter of specific, 
immediate "policies", rigidly implemented no matter how Inopportune, than it is a state 
of mind, being ideologically and psychologically captive to the classic collectivist 
superstitions, of being incapable of objective analysis and social criticism which Is 
free of the proto-Prussian presuppositions of Marcuslan mythology and the inane tweedle- 
dum and tweedledee of left vs. right. (Like so many of the leading figures in our 
political life. Tru deau suffers from a truly bad education; he also suffers from a basic 
personal immaturi ty and uncertainty, which results in his imagining himself to be original 
when h e is merely indulging in adolescent tomfoolery, like sliding down bannisters, and 
he is never more th e conformist thafa when he fancies himself a "radical" .) They, (Fisher 
& Crowe) might even consider the remark of Trudeau's spiritual advisor, Marchall McLuhar 
("Vm a bit of a McLuhanite" - Trudeau) in his review of the Trudeau opus for the NEW 
YORK TIMES, to the effect that "parties and pbllcies are finished in poliUcs." (Presumabj 
parties and policies are sleated to be replaced by "efficient" anarcho-socialist actiop. 
hence the enormous stress Trudeau places upon "efficiency" in Parliament; wiU he also 
get the railroads running on time and build his superhighways?) For Trudeau, policies to 
meet specific situations are a matter of timing, and he has always had a great deal to say 
about political strategy ("radical strategy must be designed to operate under the present 
electoral system"), Trudeau is nothing If not methodic, and he has told us himself that 
"the first year will be one of putting the right people in the right places." First things 
first, as it were (Cf. MY FIRST YEAR ASA PRIME MINISTER, Macleans, June 1969), 
Perhaps Donald Macdonald ("A person can be in public life too long"), the Trudeau 
circus master in the House of Commons, revealed mare than was intended when he said 
that the new House Rule 75-C had to be adopted because of the strong opposition which 
the Government anticipated to legislation it was planning to introduce in the autumn sessic 

(1969) of the House. Fisher and Crowe may get a surprising Jolt yet. 

For other "Indicators" of Trudeau's domestic pursuit of s oc la lltar lantern, we could 
do no better than to recommend a thoughtful glance at our second Trudeau Fact Sheet 
CANADA'S FIRST YEAR OF TRUDEAUCRACY, which lists like a comprehensive compdla'tlon 
Many items which in isolation might seem more or less innocuous, assume importance and 
meaning when they are all toted up and seen against the background of Trudeau's educational 
influences, his published utterances, the public record of his progressive political activi- 
ties, and his avowed and continuing allegienee to his life-long "left-of-centre" political 
philosophy (Cf. Trudeau in Kingston, November 1968). Among these "Indicators", one 
would find: 

*** his repudiation of lalssgz falre (free enterprise) in Calgary during the election 
campaign Qune 1968) and his admission that his "Liberalism" was only a label; 


D^vld Hoffman' s revelation in the DAILY STAR (June 1968) that "Trudeau Is bending 
over backwards to a££gaL extremely conservative on economic Issues", as well as 
former Postmaster-General Eric Kierans ' confirmation of this kine of duplicity in his 
interview with Peter C. Newm/^n. editor-in-chief of the STAR (December 1968): 
"Although ideologically he's always been a leftwlnger, Kierans admits that the 
Trudeau administration is temporarily at least, following what is essentially a 
conservative line." Clearly announcing the Trudeau strategy, Kierans stated that 
"We are pausing before we take another leap... We wUl have to chance not only ny r 
situation, but, t o some degree, our natures.": 

*** his imposition of tight Cabinet secrecy in July 1968, the high priority given to 
parliamentary "reform", the matter having been brought up at the first session of 
Trudeau's majority Parliament last September (1968), and his having "put the screws 
on three powerful groups in Ottawa, the Cabinet, the civil service Brahmins, and 
the parliamentary press gaUery" (Cf. Dennis BraithwaitP, Sept. 5, 1968): 

*** Secretary of State Gerard PelletiP,r's trial balloon last October re a possible youth 
labour draft on the Maoist model, which Trudeau said in the Commons "might be 
done in the future"; 

*** the address given last November to the Association of Universities and Colleges of 
Canada by Gerard Pelletler ("an unwavering line of thought") in which he virtually 
endorsed the fascist fifth columns operating on the nation's campuses and which 
Fisher & Crowe themselves described as celebrating "most of the slogans of the 
student extremists. . .straight from the New Left broadsheets" (Nov. 4, 1968); 


the frequency with which such totalitarlans are entertained at cosy little dinner 
parties (no banana peel throwing?) at Sussex Drive (Cf. jSnthonv Westell . GLOBE 
& MAIL, Nov. 4, 1968); 


on i^ugust 8th last, Trudeau was involved in what the Canadian Press described as 
"a. fist-swinging melee" in which he clouted a number of obscene Maoist demon- 
strators outside the Seaforth Armouries in Vancouver, where he was to address a 
fund-raising dinner of the Party faithful (don't tha>- ever do anything but eat?). The 
PM was livid: they wouldn't listen to him, which in Trudeau's book is more serious than 
the sin against the Holy Spirit. That probably enraged him more than being pelted by the 
now famous old wet banana peel. In any case, gnashing his teeth, he sailed into the 
armouries with his usual heavy bodyguard to join his fifty-dollar-a-plate Liberals and 
for about a quarter of an hour told them that there were. . .totalitarlans In the street.' Big 
news. Among the people outside", it seems, were American draft dodgers and deserters, 
those political prostitutes who have so eagerly accepted the Maoist noose, and for whom 
Trudeau's warm solicitude has provided sanctuary within our country. He did not take 
issue with thefr antl-Vletnamese or anti-American agitation: " . . .1 understand and I respect 
Canadians, or people of other countries, who feel this (war in Vietnam) is a sin, a blot 
on humanity, , . " What did rile him, apparently, was the violent heckling to which they 
subjected him (he was the only one who used, or could use, physical violence) thereby 
refusing to even listen to what he had to say. However, it is precisely this "seed of 
totalitarianism" (Maoism full-blown, rather) which the Trudeau regime has watered, 
cultivated, and nourished by the unconscionable diversion of public funds along other 
expressions of official federal sympathy (Health & V elfare Minister John Munro seemed 
to be gleefully entlclpating totalitarian violence, of the very sort that now seemed to 
bother Trudeau, when he said that federal funds would enable Nova Scotia's Black United 
mmj. the recent beneficiary of half a million dollars of federal funds, to "raise hell" with 
the Government itself: ) Whenever there has bee a public outcry during the past year, 
either within Parliament or out, against the sabotage, arson and terrx^ism of the 

totalitarian fifth column in this country, or against the "open door" policy with regard 
to the traffic in and out of the country of Reds, spies, draft dodgers and deserters, the 
Trudeau dictatorship has gone out of its way to excuse it. ^hen Iohn_DiefenbaJcer asked 
a question in the House last November (1963) re the traffic of Red 'riff-raff in and out of 
the country, Trudeau replied that " . . .it is not our view that there can be any danger of 
uprising or strife as a consequence of a free discussion of ideas." Last March follow- 
ing the discovery of a totalitarian arsenal and propaganda depot in Montreal, John Tun er 
Trudeau s Minister of Justice, ("law may not be only an instrument of order but frequently 
its adversary) brushed aside the mounting demand for an Investigation of these fifth 
column activities, and in the same month, the PM himself dismissed a suggestion from 
Diefenbaker that a Royal Commission be appointed to investigate Red terror and subversion 
on the nation's campuses, pleading that such an investigation came under (hold your 
hats.' )... provincial Jurisdiction; When protecting the life and property, both public 
and private, of loyal tax-paying citizens is in question, Ottawa gets all uptight about 
"free discussion" and spouts nonsense about national security being a "provincial- 
matter, but when Trudeau himself gets slapped with a banana peel and is treated to the 
kind of obscene hazing which is standard operating procedure for the Maoist degenerates 
then he gets indignant as all-get-out and says "we must fight. . .against this we must 
stand. Can hypocrisy go further? 

*** the erection of the "regional desk" system, under the management of Pierre Levasseur. 
described by i^nthony Westell (vide suDra) as a "network of about 50 at present to a goal of 
^5°" sekretni sotrudniki (secret Informers) on the Stalinist model (as well as a similar 
system among civil servants) recruited from among "businessmen, intellectuals, news- 
papermen and editors", whose task is to inform the Govermajent "as frankly as possible, 
(or themselves and from what thev k now others are thinking " about the "performance of 
the Government", and which Fisher & Crowe themselves described as a "spy system 
ominous in its potential" (Cf. TELEGRAM, Nov. 29, 1968). The system so far does no't 
seem to be able to keep the Trudeau Compact too well informed about the mood of the 
people, judging from Peter C. Newman's recent report that "there is a gap between the 
view of the country (Trudeau) and his retinue have from the East Block, and the kind of 
society they are actually trying to govern". (Cf. DAILY STAR, August 11, 1969); 

*** the Parliamentary "reform" of last December (1968) which removed from the Commons 
the right to examine departmental spending estimates and shifted this democratic function 
to rigged standing committees; 

*** the revelation last February by Steven Otto (Lib., York East) that "the Government 
Members of the committees have been instructed to make no changes to the bills coming 

, i'^TL^^r-f^!^"'^"®^' ^""^ '° ''°'® exacUy as they are told by the Government," which 
led IHE TELEGRAM to comment editorially that "democracy as we know it in Canada is 
on shaky ground"; 

*** the invitation to lunch in Ottawa extended by Gerard Pelletier to the notorious 
clerico-communlst, Monsignor Ivgn niich ("perhaps a healthy walk") who visited Canada 
this summer to participate in the Couchichino Conf^r t^nrp; 

*** Trudeau's suggestion to the frate wheat growers in Saskatoon last July that "the Gov- 
ernment would be willing to buy uneconomic farms and pay the poor farmers a salary to 
run it for their lifetimes" (Cf. Rick Mackle. the TELEGRAM, July 18th). 

*** the proposed revision of the federal tax laws to permit Ottawa to appropriate all 
estates valued at $20,000.00 or more; like House Rule 16-A, this latter proposal was 
withdrawn as a result of widespread public alarm, but like the parliamentary gag rule, 
which showed up again In a matter of months, it will be back to haunt us again, no doubt, 
possibly in the new session of Parliament this coming autumn (1969) when the Government 
trots out its new legislation for tax reform . 

*** the unsubtle threat to the press in the course of his dressing down of Canadian 
reporters in London for their "crummy behaviour" in reporting his exhibitionist social 
K T^i"^*^^""^ *^^' " "^^^^^ ^^ expedient to place them under political police surveillance; 
the DAILY STAR'S reaction was perhaps typical: "He's got to be kidding. . .hasn't he? " . 
though Dennis Braithwaite was more succinct: "Nuts to you, Pierre.' "; 

*** his description of Communism (again in London) as an "ideal" and "something 
which the world should have"; 

*** his refusal to send traditional greetings to an anniversary celebration of the 
Canadian League for Ukrainian Ubpr^Hop on the grounds that he wanted to avoid "an 
anti-Soviet gesture".' ; 

*** his admission to students at Kingston last November (1968 to the effect that he 
had not changed his "left of centre" philosophy; 

*** and, of course, the new high postal rates which came into effect last April, snuffing 

catlon^irH .^^"^^ w r'°^^''' '"^ '^^°^'"^ ' ^^'^^y °^ totalitarian and Hip^irpubli-

When men like Clement Attlee claim that the war in China was 'a civil war' 
between two conflicting native factions, we ask them, how naive can they get? 
It was not a civil war. It was part and parcel of the international campaign of

the Nickel Mines of Thompson, 

Part 1 ; The Mining Industry 

Recent political trends, both federally and provincially across Canada, unmistake- 
a-ly indicate that the free enterprise system, which over the /ears has provided 
Canadians with one of the v/orld's highest standards of living, is -jeinc eroded at an 
ever- increasing rate by the forces of socialism. 

Until 1958, the mining industry, relatively free from government interference, was 
a prime example of the superiority of the Ixee enterprise system to develop . regional 
economies, and thereby ..eneflt the whole nation. This fact hasn't appealed to the 
overwhelmingly leftist journalistic profession, so that the image which city dwellers 
have of Canada's northern mining towns is one of widespread poverty, unemployment, 
lack of industry, frontier conditions, tarpaper shacks, and Indians done in -.y the white 
man. Certainly some isolated conditions do exist, out the overwhelming fact remains 
that the so-called mid and north Canada region has a shortage of la -our; has on the 
average a much higher per capita income than southern cities; and contri^jutes excessive 
wealth which generally filters its v/ay through consumer demand into the cities. Vvhat the 
sentimentalists with the CBC, who like to focus on pockets Oi poverty such as Moosonee 
or Churchill don't tell the pu-lic is that the "poverty cases" boozing away their v^elfare 
cheques need merely ride the train a few hours to get to where the jous are. 

In the three provinces where this writer has resided for extended periods, 3.C. , 
Manitooa, and Ontario, it is not surprising that the provincial NDP'S message to 
northern dwellers is always that the government has jeen neglecting the north. I say 
thank God the government has een neglecting the north. Unfortunately, toda/ with 
unprecedented taxes required to meet government spending, the government is no longer 
neglecting the north. Already in 1SG9 the handwriting is on the wall. The results 
which today are devastating on paper will oe disasterous in reality in the very near 
future unless present trends are swiftly reversed. 

From the years 194 to 1968, mining has grown at a rate 1 3/4 times the national 
average. Indicative of today's uneasiness in the industry is the fact that capital 
spending intentions for 195S now represent a figure less than l/- of the national 
average for other industries . 

The reasons for this stagnation begin with the Carter Report and are given increas- 
ing weight by the implementation provincially in Ontario, through the jack door, of 
much of the spirit of the Carter Report. Furthermore, the mining industry has little 
to feel optimistic a out concerning the federally proposed Industrial Incentives Act and 
the Trudeau ca inet's thorough-going review of the nation's tax structure. 

The Carter Report is by no means a dead issue, with its influence limited merely 
to the "Carter Cult" of the NDP and a few labour leaders. The total ignorance within 
which the Carter Report arrived at its recommendations is amply evident in their 
statement: "The role of mining in opening up remote areas of Canada has ^een over- 
stressed as mining companies do not rank high as employers." The truth is that there 
is hardly a population centre in mid and north Canada which doesn't owe its existence 
to mining. The Carter Commission advanced in connection with mining the "theory of 
mobile capital", a favourite theory of socialists advocating total authoritarian govern- 
ment planning and direction of investment. Is it at all reallsUc to expect that capital 
diverted from mining in Latarador City, Shefferville, Atikoken, Timmins, Elliot Lake, 
Flin Flon, Thompson, Uranium City or Yellowknife would be invested in other activities 
in these regions? The very thought is utterly ludicrous. While mining may not 
provide directly as large an employment per dollar invested as manufacturing, it 
stimulates a ^road range of manufacturing and service industries in areas which would 
otherwise e wilderness. The multiplier effect of this capital intensive industry Is 
such as to create five support persons for every one employed in minijjg. In Sudbury 
a mining labour force of 15,000 supports an area population of 100.000. In Thompson, 

N/janito-.a 3,600 min#>rs support a populatinn of 20,000. Typical of mining^s stimulus 
to the Canadian economy is the Iron Ore Company of Canada, active in the Quebec- 
Labrador hinterland. This compan/ has since 1954 expended over one billion dollars 
on purchases of supplies, equipment and services; has opened up the interior with 
a $150 million rallroad;and has provided the support for three municipalities with a 
total population of 40,000. Furthermore the yearly per capita income of employees 
and dependants averaged $4,265 as against $2, OSS and $1,424 for all residents in 
Qwe-^ec and Labrador respectively. 

Since 1954 in a free enterprise climate, mining has been the driving force in 
Canada's economic development. Mining has helped ease the glutted laoour markets 
of the i-ig cities; has opened up a Canada away from the congested population strip 
adjacent to the U.S. border; has provided 40% of Canada's exports; has thereby 
su-stantially improved Canada's foreign exchange reserves and -.alance of payments 
position (especially with the U.S.); and has played a great part in generating comm- 
ercial development and purchasing power of imports of a magnitude and diversity 
attaining for Canada such a high standard of living. The future growth of Canada's 
economy depends greatly on the mining industry's aoility to expand exports in a highly 
competitive world market, which in turn requires a continuation of the general climate 
of encouragement and incentive inherent in free enterprise principles. To change 
the tax laws and remove incentives relating to mining is tampering with a cornerstone 
of the Canadian economy. 

In northern mining towns such a s Thompson, these economic facts of life are 
so self-evident that union pujlications pay only mild lip-service towards implementation 
of the Carter Report. Not surprisingly the main pro-Carter impetus from laoour comes 
from the steelworker's local in Hamilton. The Stelco emplo/ees really should know 
oetter. Stelco's production and hence la our demand was off only marignally the 
past year due to greater iron ore production in the Shefferville area due to capital 
attracted in jy tax incentives that the Carter Report would have a olished. 

The uest example of how the Carter Recommendations undermine confidence in a 
project even though no new tax changes have occurred is the example of Srenda N. ines 
in the Okanagan Valley. Feasa -Hit/ studies were completed before the Carter Report 
on a low grade copper moly^-denum ore body. Then with the confidence of investors 
shattered, the $50 million capital investment could only be raised after government 
assurances that the tax-free period would not oe affected until 1974. 

During the 1957-5. economic recession the only province in Canada which 
escaped the effects was Manitooa — a situation due entirely to the investment of 
$100 million by International Nickel in the Thompson area. The decision to mine the 
ore was made only after long consideration of political conditions, not just drill 

In 1S69, huge projects are held up pending fear of the Trudeau cabinet's tax 
reforms. In the first quarter of 1S59, fledgling Canadian junior mining companies, 
due to this uncertainty, were a .le to raise on the Toronto and Montreal exchanges 
only $7 million as against $G4 million in 1958. This all takes more of the mining 
industr/ out of Canadian hands to the benefit of large foreign international cartels 
which have the financial mo 41ity to change from one countr/ to another depending 
on favouraole inducements. Such elimination of competition and centralization of 
the industry caused uy socialist measures in turn adds weight and electoral appeal 
to socialist arguments for government action to combat huge corporations in the name 
of the little guy — the same little guy scdialiem has squeezed out long ago. 

Recent ligislation in Ontario has done little to improve the climate for mining 
investment. In early 19G9, the so-called Conservative government clamped a new 
15% royalty tax on the industry; passed a law requiring Ontario ore to oe smelted 
in Ontario; and in the i-udget forecast a capital gains tax within two years. Already 
the corporate income tax levied by the federal government is the largest item in any 
mining budget. New in search for new revenue to buy votes with, the Ontario 
government has Invoked the new principle of taxing mines beyond the cost of 
municipal services in the area, merely to benefit the general provincial revenues. 
In the short run the government gets the revenue to finance another handout and wins 
the next election. In the long run, new investment will avoid the province. Increased 
taxation would prolong the amortization period and generally reduce the return firom 

mining, and consftqupntly the incentives to Qxplcre and develop mine& m the pro^ylnce. 
Undue taxation rates make man/ marginal ore oodles uneconomical to pirife. Mandatory 
long term planning becomes impossi..le~the marginal ore stays in the ground along 
witf) the joLis^and revenue that would have >een generated. . The. law requiring Ontario 
ore to ;^e smelted in t^e province sounds grand on paper and is sure to placate those 
screaming a--out a sellout of Canada's resources to the U.S. In reality, with metals 
that have to sell in a highly competitive market (such as iron ore) the lowest idder 
gets the contract. If smelting the ore in Ontario makes it too costly to remain com- 
petitive, the, ore together with the prospective jO:^s stays right there— in the ground. 
The gpverrtmeht acknowledges certain short term losses and plans to subsidize wide- 
spread sip elter construction out envisions a long range advantage. NUning capital is 
international uy nature euid like water follows the line of least resistance. In the long 
run, mininc; companies would rather face the impersonal out equally applicable market 
forces than the whims of politicians. It is small wonder that so many heretofore solidly 
Canadian mining firms are seeking mcare favouraJe tax climates a road. Yet this is 
the time when the economy needs to, create more joos. Again socialist measures 
aggravate the investment climate and add to the socialist argument for complete 
government planning to cure unemployment, . It just wouldn't occur to our visionary 
egalitarians seeking political office with promises of more government spending, that 
excessive taxation is self-defeating oy retarding the economic growth which is the 
real sourc3 of the adaitional tax revenue required. , . • . , 

Furthermore, the federal government spent a -illlon dollars more in the 1S5 /oS 
fiscal year than inthe previous one - a 10% increase. When the government spends 
money far faster than the economy can stand or society is a.-le to pay, the working 
incentive of Canada's most productive industry is further eroded as Uurdening ta;:es 
and the inflated .dollar do maximum harm to the delicate valance ^etween cost and 
return on marginal ore oodles, in what is to oegin with a ver,/ high-risk industry. 

For those who care to look, there is ample evidence provided jy the CCF govern- 
ment of T.C. Douglas in Saskatchewan from lj94^i to 1S52 of what happens to a pro- 
vincial economy when government interference creates a climate unfavoura-^le to free 
enterprise. In Saskatchewan the discovery of uranium led to a mining joom in the 
late lS50's. The socialist government immediately seized on a new opportunity to 
draw off more tax revenue to infuse into their persnially failing crown corporations 
and clamped unprecedented taxes on the mining industry headed jy a then staggering 
royalty rate of 12 1/2%. Hence the mining -oom that could have provided jo^s for the 
province's 27,000 ur:oan unemployed, reducea the outflov/ of population frop the 
province, and infused -adly needed wages into the economy to create consumer demand 
for more products and services was quickly snuffed out. V^hen known reserves were 
exhausted, the climate l^eing unfavouraole for new exploratrion, the jig exodus began. 
Information tabled during the 1962 session of the provincial legislature disclosed that 
mines producing uranium, copper and zinc had dwindled to four from a peak of 30 
operating in 1959. By the time the CCF was jolted back to reality it was too late. 
The threatened loss of the largest of the private companies, Kerr-Addison G0I4 Mines 
was averted only by last minute government assurances that mineral disposition 
regulations would be altered to make them more favourable to mining coijipanies. This 
ble&k picture is to be contrasted with the new prosperity since free enterprise was 
restored to the province by the victory at the polls by Ross Thatcher and the Liberals 
in 1962. Today, new investment has made Saskatchewan the potash capital of the 
world (Trudeau doesn't have to sell it) and the most active exploration and develop- 
ment in the nation is occurring in the Vvollaston Lake region of northern Saskatchewan. 

"a parallel development occurred in the oil industry which peaked in 1957, 
before socialism went to work, on it. First the Douglas government gave its power 
corporation, run by party hacks,, a cpmplete monopoly of the distribution of natural 
gas; made special lease concessions to "politically-pure" co-operatives; and, just 
when the industry was facing. marketing problems, imposed of all things, a road 
allowance royalty. Just like the min^s, the oil companies stayed to deyeloP proven 
areas and then moved out. In 1961, 40 geophysical crews were active in Alberta, 
23 in British Columbia, U in the North-Vvest Territories and one in Saskatchewan. 
In early 1962, Sun Oil, Canadian Fina, and Shell Oil all left for better political 
climates , Provincial revenues from petroleum and natural gas dropped tom 
$22 million in 1957 to $12 million in 1961, bearing ample testimony that the only 
way to increase revenues is to expand the economy and hence the tax base. Anyone 
who listens to the NDP platform today, can see that the socialists just can t seem 
to learn anything about economic reality. 

Tommy- Douglas could-afford tolerthe-valueof the.*hare&.^ his CCF-govemment- 
■ruii steel mill fall from the original $5.40 to $1.50 and then start looking for a private 
buyer to take the mill off his hands. In a nationalized industry, only the taxpayers 
are roasted and besides they can be bought off with new promises at the next election. 
On the other hand, the managers of private industry must produce a profit on their 
stock or lose their shareholders and go out of business . The incentive provided 
therein, while creating legitimate profits, creates productive Jobs, advances the 
economy, widens the tax base and raises the national standard of living. Socialism, 
masquerading as economic democracy and the road to Utopia, is in reality the furthest 
thing from it. Despite the post-war boom. In 1956 in Saskatchewan there were 26 
fewer people employed in manufacturing than when the CCF ffrst assumed poser 12 
years earlier with promises of making Reglna the "Pittsburgh of the Prafries". 

Meanwhile, the future of the mining Industry rests with Trudeau's present 
review of the entfre tax structure of the nation. Pessimism based on previous trends 
of the Trudeau cabinet has held up many projects pending legislation. Present doubts 
are being further increased by the proposed Industrial Incentives Act directed by Jean 
Marchand, and now being studied in committee. The Industrial Incentives Act gives 
the cabinet the sole right to designate areas to be eligible for aid. The minister has 
sole authority to administer the scheme, having literally untold millions of the tax- 
payers money at his disposal. He may or may not help a private industry or locality 
as he sees fit without appeal. He has the absolute power to decide what will or will 
not make a "significant contribution" to the expansion and adjustment of any desig- 
nated area. The act makes N.archand the largest dispenser of public funds at one 
man s discretion in the history of Canada. Again an example of parliament via the 
coluslon of liberal backbenchers frittering away its sovereign power and imperceptibly 
making Canada litUe different from other lands where governments give the people 
what they think is good for them. It sounds extremely reminiscent of the CCF's 
Industrial Development Office which attracted negligible new industry to Saskatchewan, 
but was mainly pre-occupied with ways and means of spending public funds in order 
to qualify for larger operating budgets. Nevertheless it was invaluable to the CCF 
in providing top jobs for party faithful and assuring the political allegiance of anyono 
wanting a government grant or loan. 

Of special danger to the mining industry is the Act's inherent acceptance of 
another of the Carter Report's recommendations; namely that area subsidies should 
be preferred to tax Incentives and that any concessions made should not be confined 
to one type of Industry but to specific areas. All of this runs contrary to the estab- 
lished economic facts of the mining industry. Compared to tax concessions, area 
subsidies are uneconomical since they undoubtedly encourage the establishment of 
industries which in the long run would requfre more special subsidies and therein 
more dependence on government and a permanent drain on the taxpayer. It is far 
easier to create a subsidy than to end one. It is easy to nationalize an industry; 
it is almost impossible to de-nationalize one. It is easy to create a dependence on 
government; it is far more difficult to reverse accompanying trends in thinking. 
Programmes designed to stimulate regional development should be based on the 
existing potential of resources in the region. Therefore it is a completely unaccept- 
able argument that tax incentives ivg the mining industry which only become effective 
when an enterprise la already prospering and earning taxable income should be rejected 
in favour of an area subsidy having no relation whatever to income. On page 259, the 
"1967 Annual Review of the Economic Council of Canada" reads: "We re-iterate the 
Importance of avoiding permanent subsidy programs which serve mainly to lock 
Canadians into low-productivity industries and declining occupations." 

Furthermore the attitudes of ministers as individuals cannot be divorced from a 
consideration of the powers they are seeking. Mr. Marchand has had an activist career 
in the trade union movement in Quebec and is well versed in advocating government 
power as one way of getUng people to do as they are told for their own good. His deputy 
minister is Tom Kent, one of the most dangerous men in Ottawa, whose main claim to 
notoriety recently, has been the production of documents for the consideration of various 
official and unofficial conferences which have been chiefly notable for an advocacy of 
drastic government action. 

Perhaps a final consideration might impress upon readers just how far socialism has 
taken a sfrangle-hold on the nation's economy. Recently the nationalization of all mining 
in Mexico was achieved by the government proclamation that 51% of all ownership must b^- 
in the hands of Miexican Nationals. However, in theses of the mining industry, in light of 
the 1969 corporation tax rate in Canada which is generally more than 50%, the Mexican 
law does not appear to be so severe.

Fromm, good-humouredly, answered questions and sold books to a largely 
hostile, hairy, and ill-dressed group of students, most of whom professed a committ- 
ment to "humanitarian" socialist revolution. Marijuana and hashish were in u.-se at 
the conference. 

However, there were a few quiet students - ones who were thinking and not 
Just regurgitating Marxist slogans. From these "quiet ones" have come two further 
invitations to show E.B.S. films. 

On Monday, September 3, the Edmund Burke Society was commissioned to help 
our anti-communist allies in the Bulgarian community sorrowfully commemorate the 
Soviet violation of their homeland. An enthusiastic, book-buying audience of slaty 
saw Mv Latvia and Anarchy at the King Edward Hotel. Post Mortem s on the event 
reveal a growing enthusiasm and awareness amongst the Bulgarians that the Edmund 
Burke Society represents the vanguard of an effective anti-communist movement, 
dedicated to an ordered society and economic freedom. 

As elsewhere noted, book sales at the CN.E. did not match our expectations, 
Accordingly, to meet our expenses, several E.B.S. members have been vigourously 
circulating around local high schools and libraries promoting and selling our wide 
selection of books. Each book offers the conservative alternative to the prevailing 
permissiveness and defeatism of our times. Each book will pay future dividends 
and represents constructive action.

by F. Paul Fromm 

Every member who worked at the CN.E. has his anecdotes (heartening and 
discouraging) about the various reactions to our no-nonsense graphic presentation 
of our beliefs. Personally, two incidents stick in my mind. One greying gentle- 
man looking over some of our anti-communist literature said: "where are the 
swastikas? " . I reipiied: "I don't know. Where are they? " Taken aback by this 
reply to his ignorant remark he snarled: "We fought you people in Europe." It's 
not strange that a man who confuses an anti-communist with a nazi has never 
wondered why the war, fought to liberate Poland from Hitler's tyranny, ended when 
the victorious allies handed Poland, along with all of Eastern Europe, into the hands 
of an even worse totalitarian power, communist Russia. The second incident - 
far more touching and hopeful - occurred one Sunday afternoon. Instead of the 
mouthy ignorance of the ex-soldier, I was confronted with the work-worn face of a 
middle-aged emigre from Eastern Europe. His glow of approval more than made up 
for the broken English of his spoken congratulations. This man knew communism 
first hand. It had destroyed his homeland; and, he was overjoyed to see a group 
of Canadians awake to the dangers of communism to his second homeland. 

Incidents, though, must be put into perspective. Every member can cite 
good and bad moments. But, on the whole, was the CN.E. worth it? What did 
we accomplish? 


It must be admitted that literature sales did not live up to expectations. Vve 
are going to have to do some Industrious salesmanship in the next fpw monthc to meet 
our debts. However, in free literature, to which we devoted an entire table, our 
volume was heavy. Detailed pamphlets on free enterprize. Red China, Taiwan, 
communism. Bill 75-C, and Pierre Elliot Trudeau were snapped up in great numbers 
by passers by. Even if only one, tenth of these are read, we have reached thousands 
of new people with our message. 

Although our location, the East Annex of the Coliseum, was not a particularly 
good one, our booth attracted the attention and observation of most people who 
entered the building. These people were able to see (most for the first time) a grajlhic 
portrayal of what we stand for. We illustrated our activities with large blow-ups 
of pictures and newspaper clippings a^^out us. The message of militant conservative 
activism - in the streets, on the campus for a decent university, and through such 
educational means as films, debates, and speeches - came across loud and clear. 
Our exhibits of communist atrocities in Red China and in the Baltic countries was a 
rude awakening to many people. 

A large number of interested people left their names. 
STRAIGHT talk; or left donations. 

Many subscribed to 

Internally, the C.N.E. strengthened the E.B.S. Never had we undertaken 
such a protracted stint of political activity. Many memoers got their first taste of 
meeting, explaining to, and arguing with the general public. Out of the C.N.E. 
emerged a seasoned group of political veterans. Between 35 and 40 members took 
turns manning the booth. Our organization kept the booth effectively manned all 
the time, A spirit of friendship and co-operation grew up among many members, 
making us more and more a true "society" of friends. 

The excellent Baltic exhibits (and subsequent favourable reports in the Latvian 
and Lithuanian papers) is encouraging success for our policy of active co-operation 
with ethnic anti-communist groups . 

The widesptBBd press coverage of our C.N.E. venture is a tribute to our two 
years of hard-won political experience and to our public relations officer, Jeff 
Goodall, Louis de Boer was interviewed at the booth and told the story of the 
Edmund Burke Society to C.B.C. radio audiences coast to coast. 

E.B.S. AT THE C.N.E.: 


The presence of E.B.S. members and colleagues at the C.N.E. was the 
greatest and most successful single undertaking that we have thus far engaged in. 
Although we were breaking new ground, with no precedent to go by, the courage 
and persistence of members and friends combined to make this expensive venture 
a great success. 

Preparations had oeen long and difficult, due to the necessity of negotiation 
and co-ordination with participating Ethrflc groups , the difficulties of acqufring 
large quantities of anti-Communist material, and the setting up of schedules to 
ensure proper manning of our booth. However, on August 14th, after much hard 
work, our efforts culminated in complete preparation for the opening of the C.N.E, 
on the following day. 

The basic oDjects 6t our presence in the East Annex of the Coliseum were 
threefold: ffrst, to physically and visually demonsfrate to the public that there 
is. an alternative to the liberal-leftist-Communlst dogma continually thrown at us 
by the mass media; secondly, to meet the public and have a forum from which to 
express our views; and thfrdly, to sell and distribute as much conservative and 
anti-Communist literature as possible. Accordingly, the booth was characterized 
by eye-catching visual displays on the seven-foot high rear wall of the booth, 
prominent counter displays of books and free literature, and seats where interested 
passers-by could sit down and discuss whatever was on their minds.

The following is the full text of a registered letter sent Friday, 
September 19th to the Honourable John Munro, Federal Minister 
of Health and V, elfare, requesting a grant to the E.B.S. of 
one-half million dollars from the Federal Government. 

The Honourable John Munro, 
Minister of Health and "Welfard, 
Ottawa, Ontario, 

Dear Sir: 

September 19, 1969, 

The Undersigned, members of the Executive Council of the Edmund Burke Society, 
herein respectfully make application for a grant from the Department of National 
Health and Welfare in the amount of $500,000.00, in order that the work of our 
Society may be carried on more effectivel/ and more extensively. 

The Edmund Burke Society was founded over two years ago as an independent assoc- 
iation of citizens from all walks of life — students, workers, amall business and 
professional pepple, of varied racial and religious backgrounds — to promote and 
defend our heritage of constitutional and parliamentary government under the Rule of 
Law. It was founded in Canada, ov Canadians, and has no organizational connection 
with any fordcn r acial or political movement, nor did any foreign representatives of 
any such movement s preside over its founding . The fundamental aim of our Society is 
to organize and educate citizens for effective participation in the democratic civic 
processes by me&ns of which our countr/ Is governed. • It is only by acquiring the 
techniques of organized action, independently of the established political parties 
now in existence, whose partisan commitments and factionalism to some extent 
disqualify them from addressing themselves objectively to the social and political 
problems and needs of the "little pept)le"in this country, that these same "little 
people" can participate in a great national movement to build a truly Just Society. 
We see the real "proletarians" of our country among the over-burdened and virtually 
unprotected tax-payers, the old age pensioners su^jsisting on substandard incomes 
which could be termed "fixed" were it not for the declining value of the dollar in the 
face of the unchecked inflation of the cost of living, as well as among the spiritually 
uprooted and psychologically alienated youth of our country, particularly in our 
universities, subject as they are to infection from those "seeds of totalitarianism" 
which the Prime Minister decried in his speech at the Seaforth Armouries in Vancouver 
last August, and whose susceptibility to totalitarianism cannot be dissociated from 
a profound disillusionment with the democratic process itself. 

Briefly, these remarks sketch the long-term objectives of our Society, the implement- 
ation of which program, to date, has Leen somewhat tentative and exploratory, due 
to lack of adequate financing. With proper funds, it vo uld be possible for our 
Society to expand and intensify its work in the direction of translating "participatory 
democracy" from the realm of rhetoric to concrete means by which people could be 
taught to participate in the democratic processes of our civic and communal life with 
maturity, intelligence, and a real hope of not only obtaining redress of their 


^ Otlfivancea^.iait-<rf-doixig so in -such a way as to be able to take real advantage af-crll 
of ttielrc±yll.aiid poUtlral rights and opportunities under the Law. We believe that 
It is in this d^^ectlon that we shall find the means to build a society which is not only 
Canadian, but Just as well; not "Just" merely. But Canadian as well. 

We are moved to make this request for a grant by the news which became public in the 
?i"q"«T''T®"1°^ ^^' Leonard Shifrtn, of the National Council of ..elfare . last August 
U969;, that the Federal Government was to provide $S00,000.00 over a period of five 
years to the United Negro Front of Nova Scotia (sometimes referred to in the press as 
^® Blg<?k Upit^d Front) . Press reports indicate that this entity was organized in 
November and December of 196C under the auspices of the American Black Panther 
Partii, an anarcho-racist organization of consideraule world-wide notoriety. One of 
the leaders of the United Negro Front, Mr. Rockv Tones, has told us (in the taping of 
the Television program UNDER ATTACK at the gniversitv of Toronto last February) that 
that his organization "has the same beliefs as the U.S. Black Panther movement". 
He further informed us that he was at Sir Georae Williams University in Montreal two 
two days oefore the arson which was perpetrated there last Feuruary, vii Ich outrage he 
described as "an example of Black Power" as envisaged by his organization. (Cf. 
TELEGRAM, Feb. 27/69). Among American Negro racists who presided over the ^^irth 
of the United Negro Front were Stokelv Carmichael. T.D. Pawlev . and George Sams 
(alias Robert Waddel^ Smith), the latter of whom was deported from Canada last month 
(August 1969) and promptly arrested oy the Ajnerican authorities in connection with 
the torture and murder of fellow party member, Alex Racklev of New York. 

While it might be possible to question the wisdom of any Department or Ministry of the 
Federal Government suosldizing an organization promoting racism and anarchy, with 
their anti-social propensity fear dividing Canadians against one another, and which 
was founded under such dubious auspices, there have in fact been voices raised 
(ifegro voices) to express strong disapproval of the Federal Government's generous 
gesture on the grounds that the United Negro Front does not, in fact, represent the 
Negro community in Nova Scotia, the majority of whose members belong to the African 
United Baptist Association of N ova Scotia , which, despite its name, is not a racially 
exclusive organization, since it counts both white and Negro clergy within its ranks. 
This organization has publicly dissociated itself from the United Negro Front from the 
beginning, and its Moderator, Mr. Ross Kinnev has made it quite clear that "we are 
not committed to the United Negro Front. " Mr. Kinney has lamented that "Vve have 
leaders in the area who were not recognized for the leaders that they are and we were 
not asked to take an active part in the United Negro Front. In our association we have 
white and negro clergy servi n g in our community and I do not intend that thev should 
be humiliated while I am M oderator. . . . .The people in general of this province resent 
the implications and impressions that have been made by those who are representatives 
of an organization outside of this province, namely, the Black Panther movement, 
(Cf. Canadian Press, Dec. 4/66). Mr. Kinney is further reported to the effect that 
"Negroes in Nova Scotia do not in any way associate themselves with the views of 
the Black Panther movement", which is to say, with racism and anarchy. It would 
seem, therefore, that the United Negro Front is scarcely more than a fascist fraud, 
believed by many Negroes in Halifax to be constituted by "a tightly knit group of 
Black Power advocates . . . planning to press more moderate Negroes into either silence 
or service in the movement" (Cf. TELEGRAMj, Nov. 25/6C: despatch headed PANTHERS 
SET UP N.S. GRQUP). Since the Prime Minister has denounced " 'mob rule" and 
pronounced himself in favour of "law and order" (in connection with the difficulties 
in St. Leonard), many Canadians will find it difficult to understand the motives' of the 
Federal Government in making such an extraordinary grant of their money to the United 
Negro front as that announced by Mr. Shlfrin. Democracy may perhaps be described 
and defined in many ways, but any authentic definition must highlight the principle 
of growth from the people, true representation of the needs and aspirations of the 
community, a nd responsibility to the community. Under such an authentic definition, 
the United Negro Front can scarcely be said to qualify, whereas the contrary would 
seem to be the case for the African United Baptist Association of Nova Scotia, which 
has not been deemed to qualify for a federal grant. 

the Edmund Burke Society, unlike the United Negro Front, has consistently opposed 
racism, anarchy, "mob rule" and the "seeds of totalitarianism" against which the 
Prime Minister inveighs so eloquently. Its membership Is open to Canadians of 
all races and religions, and its goals envisage the securing of social and distributive 
justice, the protection of individual and legal rights and the expansion of lawful 

- 11 - - 

fre^domJEcr-M-l-OsrvJ^Hjana, iiiespective of age, sex, race, r^ rr^Mair^wa <-,-oi.^iy-H.->n. 
We are convinced, then, that our Society is at least as qualified, if not more so, to 
receive a grant dimilar to that being mnde to th/^ TTnit-od Nogro Front, and we hereby 
respectfully submit our request for same. 

We hopefully await your favourable response.

"Yesterday's liberals, in particular, were resentful of the truth. They asked 
questions about the U.S.S.R. but ran off horrified when my answers were not to their 
acquired taste.... I marvelled at their mental agility. In the same book, sometimes 
in the same paragraph, they could celebrate the real democracy of the Soviet system, 
as against the bogus democracy of the parliamentary governments — and the abandon- 
ment of that real democracy for the bogus kind. They could excoriate a political 
purge in one country on the same page where they boasted of a political purge of far 
larger scope in Russia, without seeming so much as aware of the inconsistency. 
Though they had pity for the sharecroppers of our South and for suffering peasants in 
Patagonia, they had not a sigh to spare for the millions deliberately starved to death 
by the Kremlin in southern Russia." 

Written in 1969 about conditions today? Could be, but that was written in 193.; 
by Eugene Lyons in his 'Assignment in Utopia* . Eugene Lyons is an authority, and an 
expert, on Communism, like Lubor Zink and Peter Worthlngton in Canada. Are they 
listened to? No, vilification is their reward. In 193 , pacifists and pinks, the do- 
gooders who are ever with us, taught that to treat a gangster like a gentleman made 
him a gentleman. They still do it, at all levels of government, too. In those other 
days, pathetically peurile pacifists, preaching from the safety of their armchairs, 
were listened to as apostles of peace. It sounded so comfortable, but their platitudes 
cost the world millions of lives of men and women. The cost is still being paid in 
minds and matters. The tragedy is that the truth did not convert the breed. It is with 
us today, carrying on its nefarious work, refusing to face the facts of undeniaole 
modern history. They scream 'fascist' and 'fanatic' at those of us who are compelled 
by elementary reasoning to face uncomfortable facts. With unforgivable complacency, 
they deliverately shut their ears to those who have suffered unspeakable horrors from 
Communism. They listen to the Endicotts, Feinbergs, Stanley Grays, the pro-Peking 
propaganda of the United Church, the Leftist pets of the Canada Council, the Voice 
of Women, who parrot the professed conversion of Communism. Face the facts I 
They are working overtime to sell us out to the Reds, whether they actually realize 
it or not, and some of them know what they are doing.

ThR Canadian Int»llin<=>"'^«^ Seivlce, the Canadian Loyalist IVjovement, the Edmund 
Burke Society, the Canadian League of Rights, together with Ron Gostick, Pat V\/alsh, 
Lubor Zink, Peter Vvorthlngton, Edgar Hoover and others, are anathema to the majority 
in this thinkless, affluent age. This reminds one of Britain in 193' when Neville 
Chamberlain was hailed as the proven prophet of peace. Yes, and In one year, 
millions were exterminated. (However, Neville was not wholly to blame. Britain 
had cut down defences to the irreducible limit). 

1969! '. '. Trudeau and Sharp Insist that we draw closer to Red China. ^Jao has 
softened. He wants 'peace' — his peace which, to date, has meant the liquidation 
of 30,000,000 Chinese. He boasts that he is willing to sacrifice a further 400,000,000 
of his countrymen. It just shows how delightfully he has 'softened', doesn't it'. To 
show his further desire for peace, he is training subversive activists in Chinese train- 
ing camps to kill whites in Southern Africa. This apostle of 'peace' has his agents in 
Canada and the U.S.A. to make things interesting for us. The Telegram of Iviay 22, 
1969 reports that Paul Cardinal Yu Pin, 60, Archbishop of Nanking, Taiwan, not mainland 
China, repeated the warning that Chinese Communists had set up suoversive caches in 
Canada. In mainland China, by the way, where Trudeau and his henchmen seek peaceful 
co-existence with Mao, they are apparently very tender to Christians and Jews. They 
must be, otherwise we would not be ditching Christian Chiang-Kai-Chek for ^Jao. /^nd 
the General and his wife are.Christians . For instance, the following is documented. 
A Christian girl in a Communist labour camp, was oound hand and foot, and made to 
kneel in the centre of a circle of people who were commanded to stone her. Those who 
refused to do so were shot. She died with her fact shining like St. Stephen. A young 
man prayed for his persecutors as he hung six days on a cross where he died. Five 
students were sent out to dig deep holes into which they were planted, being buried 
alive. Evangelist No-Tio-Sen had his eyes gouged out, his tongue and both hands 
cut off, before being imprisoned in Shanghai. So you see how Communism is softening 

Does that shock you? It should shock us out of our comfortable pews. Just 
remember that our dictatorial government, with the aid of Endicotts and Feinbergs, 
etc., are to draw closer to Mao, Let's stand for something, before we fall for 
anything. There is something far more important than the financial page, sport, the 
summer cottage, and the things that dope our minds, and blur our vision to stark, 
staring realities. The rape of Hungary, the crushing of Czechoslovakia, are express- 
ions of the ruthless, suppressive power of Communism. These are normal activities, 
not aberrations. Where do you and I stand in this? Vvhat is our duty to those who 
suffer, and to those who come after us? Today's press is increasingly compromising. 
To close its pages to the Leftist is to decrease its circulation. That is unforgivable. 
It cuts down dividends. Newspapers exist today for sales. Mass newspaper 
amalgamation is certainly not furthering the Rightist stand. So what is left to us? 

Winston Churchill said that the most powerful thing in the world is the spoken 
word — if it is spoken with conviction. If Vv'e speak with conviction, and are sure of 
our facts, we undoubtedly influence others. Churchill did. The most powerful 
weapon in the last war, apart from God, was the strident voice of Winston Churchill, 
the master of men. Be a missionary against this evil anti-God, anti-Christ, atheistic 
power which has already enslaved most of Asia, most of Africa, a great part of Europe, 
increasingly is reaching out in South America, has infiltrated Canada to the point that 
Canadians could not care less, and has influenced the highest level of the U.S.A. 
With these words we close f 

Mourn not the dead who in the cold earth lie. 

But mourn the apathetic throng. 

The silent and the meek, 

Who see the world's great anguish and its wrong. 

But dare not speak,

The Media 

The article. Grape Exp ectations, by F. Paul Fromm, which appeared in the 
August issue of S TRAIGHT TALK i was published in the September issue of Canada ^;onth. 

Iv.ember Greg Robinson wrote an article on the S.D.S. and the radical left on 
campus for the Scarborough Si^n. In this expose, he mentioned the growing organized 
conservative resistance. Describing the fine work of the Young Americans for Freedom 
in the United States, Greg added: "The Edmund Burke Society, located right here in 
the borough, at Post Office Box 544... has taken a similar stand on Canadian campuses." 

On Target, the weekly news-sheet published by Canadian Intelligence Publi- 
cations, mentioned our demand for $500,000.00 from the Federal Government to 
parallel a similar grant to the black-racist Black United Front in Halifax, Nova Scotia, 
Incidentally, our request was rejected, in a coy letter which cutely insisted that no 
government agency gave money for our sort of activities. You don't have to be a Red 
or a Black Panther to get tax-payer's money but it sure helps in this, the second year 
in the reign of Prince Pierre. 

The University of Toronto's Varsity , whose editor Brian Johnson is a memoer of 
the New Left Caucus (a pro-^iaoist group), has studiously avoided reporting E.B.S. 
functions and press-releases. However, the University of Toronto Student Handbook, 
edited by David Frank and N.D.P.'er Steve Langdon, couldn't resist a. cut at us. 
Describing political groups on campus, they wrote: "Edmund Burke Society ~ this 
group used to be a joke, but does take itself seriously. They were involved in campus 
politics last year. . .very, very right wing." The joke was on the left. On November 
23, U. of T. students voted 2 to 1 to pull out of the Canadian Union of Students, a far- 
left radical union that has supported the Vietcong and actively financed Marxist 
research. The E.B.S. in Guelph, London, and Toronto has campaigned and leaflet- 
eered against C.U.S. for three years. Toronto, is our third victory. We distributed 
'jj'^r 2,000 pieces of literature during the campaign. Next month's STRAIGHT TALK .'

The Council's decision to c o u n terd em on s tra t e against the 
anti-American, pro-Red, 'peace' demonstration on November 15 
requires some explanation . Vve have never supported the American conduc'" 
of the war, although this is the way the press has made it look. "VVe have favoured 
a war to stop Red aggression in Vietnam, but we have opposed America's no-win, 
lack-lustre approach, which has included selling wheat and industrial goods to Red 
nations supplying weapons to the Vletcong and a refusal to uomc the source of 90% 
of North Vietnam's fighting hardware - the port of Haiphong. President Nixon's 
present policy is a studied commitment to retreat and a deep determination to avoid 
victory. A sell-out or, at least, further demoralizing tropp pull-outs are imminent. 
The Council has thereiore decided that this demonstration cannot afford to be pro- 
Nixon or pro-Am<»r1r;an.

by K. Akula 

The poets called her blue-eyed and innocent, ever-enduring and heroic; her 
people are of the purest Slavic stock, one of the most hospitable on the continent. 
She adopted a cornflower, found abundantly in her rye and v/heat fields, as a 
symbol of modesty and beauty. She blossomed and prospered among her neighbours, 
her people's life based on the staoillty of Christian principles. 

She was free and her star shone bright. 

Until Big Brother flexed his muscles. 

On her vast plains and gentle rolling hills invaders have crossed their swords: 
she had witnessed the debacle of the mighty Tartars and Teutonic Knights, of 
Napoleon and Hitler. On her soil lay buried the warriors of most European and 
Asian nations. Her people were brought to their knees repeatedly. 

Somehow they have endured and prevailed. 

In 1517, her famous son Francisak Skaryna from Polacak printed the first book in 
Byelorussian - the Bible - almost half a century ahead of the first printed Russian 
book. His pioneering endeavours ushered the flow of culture into Eastern Europe. 
Vvhen Skaryna took his books to NjOSCOw, they were labelled as heretic, seized 
and burned in the public square. Yet he brought bari-^aric Ivjuscovy to the threshold 
of printing and education. 

His country was later overrun by Ivioscow 

but his people have endured and prevailed. 

Her fertile soil nourished the roots of the ancestors of Bostoyevsky and h/iickiewicz, 
of Glinka and Maniuszka, of Kasciuszka and Kalinowski, and numerous other 
political, cultural and economic giants. Driven away from their mother's soil 
by Big Brother's oppression, her countless sons and daughters settled around 
the world and contributed to the cultural, scientific, political and economic 
achievements of hospitable nations. 

They have endured and prevailed. 

' jveip-wered and annexed by the Russian colonial empire, she became the source 
of natural and human raw materials, the most backward province of that monstrous 
prison of nations. They chained her and chanted her requiem and forbade her 
name to be mentioned among the living. They closed her schools and national 
institutions, took over her churches and deported her best minds to a distant 

Somehow her people endured and prevailed. 

In 1G63, her favourite son, Kastus Kalinowski raised the entire nation against the 
Moscow colonial despots and proclaimed in his testament: "Byelorussians, my 
dear brothers. Facing Muscovite gallows, I proclaim: then and only then will 
you gain freedom and happiness, v/hen Ivjuscovite rules you no more'. " 

Kalinowski perished so that his people 

would endure and prevail. 

Through the centuries, Moscow Big Brother endpflvoured to assimilate her people, 
annihilate her glorious past, tarnlsii her traditions, discriminate against and make 
extinct her language, suppxp>'?s he-x cMiltme. 

Her people and their spiritual 

heritage have endured and prevailed. 

- 5 - 

In 191 -, she proclaimed her independence, granting the most advanced democratic 
rights to all peoples within her boundaries. The newly-found freedom was short- 
lived. Big Brother chained her more securely than ever. Today, she is one of 
the fifteen most industrialized nations in the world; but, the standard of living of 
her people is below that of the Portuguese colony Angola. Although she is, a memhc 
of the United NStions, her so-called representatives sp^ak not for her people hnt for 
Big Brother in the Soviet Union. 

The name of the country? 


No, let's get that straight: Canada is not the 
United States, Germany is not England and 

Never was and never will be, for her people will 

endure and prevail I 


Situated between Poland,. Ukraine, Russia and the Baltic countries, 
her ethnographic territor/ encompasses over one hundred and fifty thousand square 
miles. There are over 10 million Byelorussians within the Soviet Union and 
abroad. Byelorussian scholars estimate that if the country were free and had 
developed normally, without k.oscow oppression and genocide, her population 
would presently number over fifty million. 

The country is situated Id the tompeiuCo zone witii mild winters and 
moderately warm summers. Byelorussia Irs often called a land of green forests and 
blue lakes, with forests covering over one-third of its total area. There are 
about 4,500 lakes. The largest rivers are Lniapro, Vvestern Lvina, Nioman, Piipi- 
and Biarezina. Chief species of wild life in the country's forests include moose , 
deer, wild board, roes, beavers and an abundant variety of birds. The chief cities 
of Byelorussia are iViiensk, its capital, Vllna, Homiel, Smalensk, Viciebsk, Bransk 
Polacak, Horadnia, Pierascie, iviahilou and Bielastok. 

Byelorussia is predominantly an agricultural country, although her 
r^pid industrialization progressed within the last three decades, mainly in the 
engineering, chemical, power and automobile industries. The land is rich in 
peat, calcium, rock salts, oil and coal. There are abundant natural resources for 
a very staole economic base, but the Moscow centralized government and colonial 
administration In h iensk keep her people in economic and cultural poverty. 

Colonial oppression is especially evident in education. All higher, 
most secondary and some primary schools use Russian as the language of 
instruction. The B/elorussian language is doomed to extinction. The language 
of colonial administration is solely Russian. 

Despite these tremendous handicaps Byelornssians continuously 
strive to achieve freedom. Their resistance to the ^JOScow colonial rule manifests 
itself in all branches of national life.

October 1969 proved to be a trying month for Prime ^llnistcr Pierre-Elliott 
Trudeau ("a herd of anes savants to file in v/hen the division bell ranc"), largely 
because of two major embarrassments. The first was having a subpoena served upon 
him to appear as a character witness in the hearing of a petition for bail for Pierre 
yalUeres_In ^.ontreal, along with his Secretary of State, the suave Gerard Pe lletier

ihe second major headache for the Lord Protector of the Realm was the charge 
levelled by the Chairman of ^lontreal's Executive Committee, Luclen Saulnier . that 
the federal Company of Young C anadians was engaged In "subversive activities" and 
hat 'Federal Government funds were supporting a Communist campaign to overthrow 
oanada" (Cf. TELEGRAiv , Oct. 14, 1968). In this charge, ^^ . Saulnier was to be 
seconded by dozens of municipal administrations In la Bd le Province, and it was to 
receive dramatic amplification from T.R. Anthony Iv alcolm . Vice-President of the 
Quebec Section of the Liberal Fede ration of Canada and Co-Chalrman of the anti- 
secessionlst Canada Committee , when he told a flabbergasted meeting of the Town 
2I^unt_RpyalJ/,:omenl^Club (Trudeau's home town) that "training, finance, and 
assistance of every sort is being given members of the separatist movement in Quebec 
{Tom°S^^^i ^"„'^"^^* ^" addition, funds and assistance are also funnelled into Quebec

bio k-b ''°"*^^^^'®^ $1,500.00 to help finance "Operation Iv cGill" last iViarch. The 
H t^ f -j^y^^T' ^^ ^^'^ ^^ Trudeau was concerned, however, was his publication of a 
use ot ^7 alleged iVaoists who have been or still are on the federal payroll as 

mpioyees of the Company of Young Canadians. It was a fine example of courageous 
iicc^arthyism, and Nr. ivalcolm i.<; to be heartJlr commended for having had the guts 
to speak out. 


To deal with the first of these items, I'affaire Vallieres . and Trudeau's 
connection with it, a little excursion into recant history Is required. In a sense, 
one might say that it all began with veteran Stalinist agent, Tean-Louls Gaanon 
Urecently appointed as Co-Cl,airinan of the RoYal Commission on aillnoualism & 
uic ulturalism by Trudeau), who had fled to Brazil in 1945 when the historic Gouzenko

prestigious family newspaper, LA PRESSE, of iv ontreal, the largest French language

Pe letier, who was colla.. ore ting closely with Trudeau in editing the latter's highbrow 
little magazine, CITE LIBRE, was instrumental in bringing Vallieres to 
Trudeau s attention and getting him to hire Vallieres to work on the magazine in 
beptemoer 1963. He stayea with it until I>> arch of the following ./ear, 1SG4, when 
he walkea out with eleven C. [ '.) other writers who disagreed vehemently with Trudeau's 
thesis that Trotskyism could only ve built in Canada tlirough the instrumentality of 

- 7 - 

the federal government ("a change of attitude to federalism still seems to be required 
within the ranks of Canadian socialism"). Vallieres and his friends, par contre, 
were opting for the official leftist line according to which the secessionist movement 
in Quebec was to be warped into the pattern of those phoney "national liberation" 
enterprises by means of which the Red warlords hope, in time, to convert Qtj*-bec 
into a continental Cuba, cut off from the federal Canadian state, and which, in the 
global chessgame of Stalinist geopolitical strategy, would secure them a northern 
flank in their long term plan to encircle and Isolate the United States of America, 
fhe ir ultimate. Number One target. It was two months later, in iViay (1964), that 
Trudeau published his famous essay, SEPARATIST COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARIES (whirh 
now forms the final chapter of his book, FEDERALISM AND THE FRENCH CANADIANS), 
thereby sealing the rift with his former friends who repudiated his federal strategy in 
favour of the phoney "separatist" line, designed to consign Queoec to the status of a 
province of the Socialist Camp. Let us remember, however, that just as Trudeau had 
not disputed the validity oi the pro-Poiping and anti-American purposes of his aemon- 
strator-antagonists at the Sea forth Armouries in Vancouver, similarly he does not and 
never has reproached these "separatist counter-revolutionaries" for their Trotskyism, 
out merely for their refusal to submit to his federal strategy ("If the whole of the 
Canadian electorate could miraculously be converted to socialist ideals in one feil 
swoop, there would be no reason to discuss strategy"). Like the quarrel oetween the 
ICremlin and ^.ao, from the point of view of Canadian freedom, this too is basically 
what someone has called "a quarrel aoout funeral arrangements." A year later, u^otl 
invitation of P earson 's th e n Secretary of State . iViaurice Lamontaqne, ("Federal Lioerai. 
should drop their ooposition to the 'two nations' concept and 'special status for 
Quebec - battles they have already lost - and concentrate on federal planning for the 
age of abundance") and accompanied by his .buddies Pelletier and Marchand, Trudeau 
moved into the leadership ranks of the federal Uberal Party, in a strategically Faman 
move which was to vault the Trotskyite trio to the pinnacle of political power m this 
country . 

The extraordinary intrusion of these notorious non-Liberals (no French-speaklur 
Riding would accept Trudeau as a "Lloerai" candidate; he had to be "paiacliuted into 
N^OUNT ROYAL, a carpetnagging manoeuvre bitterly resented by vetoian Li. eralsj into 
the Pearson administration did raise a few knowlf-dgonr.lo eyeia>-nvs: one political^ 
ooserver charged the Liberals "with iorciny Canadians down the road to socialism , ^^ 
.-.nd that "The Government is not leaning to the left, it's rushing pell-mell to the left. 
Tlic eiiuance of the "tliree wise men" into the Liberal ruling junta, he said, was a 
clear sign that the Pearson Government had swung hard to the left." Referring directl, 
to iViessrs. Trudeau, Iv.archand and Pelletier, he did not mince his words: "They are 
ail Socialists, and thev are all on record as oeing opposed to the Prime Ivdnister and 
the present Goveiument." Ron Gostick? Lu;jor Zink? Charles Lynch? Some besottea 
"McCarthyite"? Fasten your safety belt: it was no less a progressive than the 
National President of the Progressive Conservative As sociation, Dalton Camp . (Cf. 
TELEGRAIvi, Oct. 6, 1955)". Of course, in 19G3, it was still safe to say such things. 
At that time those who were su.jsequentiy to audicate their reason and submit to the 
irrational cult of Trudeaumanic chauvinism didn't know Trudeau from a dyspeptic 
dentist from Trois Rivieres; the ivjachiavellian "Messiah" had not yet oeen revealed 
to the gentiles. 


However, back in 1S63, Vailieres was a very jusy yOung Maoist, having 
plaved a leaaing role in the founding of the Marcusean magazine PARTI PRIS ("Side 
Taken"), soon to uecome notorious for its juvenitarian Jaco^-inlsm, its aura of 
"revolutionary " action, and its espousal of "the language oi hatred. . .which led us 
to iv.arxism..." (Cf. ANDRE MAJOR, essay, vvEAPONS IN HAND, in Stalinist 
symposium, QUEBEC STATES HER CASE, MacMillan of Canada, Toronto, 1S64) and 
which was to eclipse Trudeau's CITE LibRE in Quebec's leftist literary firmament. 
(In the course of its colourful career, the latter had featured some picturesque contri- 
butors indeed, among v>^hom were to oe iound Prof. Raymond i^oyer, convicted Stalinist 
spy, Stanley^ R'/erson ("Mantist interpretation of the History Oi Canada"), leading 
theoretician of the Canadian section of the Gomm.unist Part/ and editor of the MARXIST

release of Messrs. Vallieres and Gagnon, and other fascist fifth columnists facing 
criminal charges. (No shrinking violet he.) PLM is alleged by Mr. Malcolm to oe 
Hi close contact with Quisling ^Rpbgrt Favreau, now resident in Moscow, and a former 
leader of the Party's Komsomols (Young Communists) in Quebec. Cachand checked 
out for Soviet-occupied Cu.a last spring, following " Operation McGill "lasf March, 
which iv,alcolm alleges was partly financed .y El Fatah, (Now, do you understand, 
Ra.j.-i Fem-erg?). The PLM serves as the visL.le, a,.ove-ground, "legal" front for 
the FLQ, distinct from its undercover a pparat. according to classic Communist formula. 

In Septem.cer of 1950, Vallieres and Gagnon were arrested in New York, where 
^^hey had picketed the United Nations with placards announcing that they were on a 
hunger strike, which was supposed to have something to do with winning success for 
the FLQ's campaign of Red terror in Quebec. They successfully stalled extradition 
to Canada on muraer charges for many, man! months (they prouaUy decided to go to 
New York to avoid arrest in Montreal), while almost a dozen Red terrorists were 
an-ested anc> tried in Montreal. Among them was Serge Demers who descri.^ed himself 
as a leader of the FLQ's "action network" and who testified at his trial that a training 
camp for red fifth columnists was in operation near Montreal, where they were drilled 
in the living thoughts of Mao Tse-tuno (The Sino-Japanese war gives us, the 
Chinese Communists, an excellent opportunity for expansion") and the late and 
unlamented Che Guevara (If the rockets had remained, we would have used them 
against the very heart of the USA, including New York"). 

In March 1968, Vallieres was brought to trial for the murder on May 5,1968 
of C4 year eld Therese Morin, a receptionist at the La Grenade Shoe Co. , when a 
bomb was exploded on her desk at the Company's office by a terror squad commanded 
by Vallieres, In the course of the trial, he was identified as "the leader of a Quebec 
guerilla band that trained in a bush camp in the Laurentians in 1966" where police 
found a cache of anns and explosives (Of. TEL£GR.Ai\. , March 4, 1968, page 10). 
Gagnon, Vallieres' partner in Communist crime, was also charged in the same murder, 
as well as with manslaughter in the death of 16 year old Jean Ccfbo. an agent of the 
FLQ who was killed by the premature explosion of a bomb he was detailed to plant on 
the premises of the Dominion Textile C?. in Montreal's St. Henri quarter in July of 
1966. Gagnon ("better late than never") was acquitted of the latter charge last 
April, and is presumably awaiting trial in the Morin case. 


Readers of this bulletin may recall mention of the Vallieres case in our issue 
for June 1968, when our then columnist, "El Gusano", pointed out that "Trudeau 

- 9 - 

appeared on a list of proposed v/itnesses given to IVir, Justice Yves Leduc by Pierre 
Vallleres in the course of his trial for murder last iVJarch. Nothing more was heard of 
this, of course, for Trudeau was N.inister of lusticel ...The Vallieres trial is perhaps 
one of the most important political-criminal events in Canada today, yet our press 
maintains a virtual silence about it, Vvhy is that, do you suppose? ". The snnK> n. -"t- 
we published our first and now famouo Trudeau Fact Sheet, EAST WIND OVf.R * 'TTAWA, 
which referred to Vallieres' attempt to have Trudeau called as a character witness in 
his defence, and which asked, "did (Trudeau) testify? Was he ever called? " 'Vvell, 
the answer would seem to be: no, he wasn't, and it is scarcely difficult to understand 
his reluctance to having his former protege focus a spotlight of public scrutiny on these 
sinister seditious associations of his recent past. In iviarch 196- , Vallieres was 
conducting his own defence, a role which permitted him to grandstand histrionically 
in the grand ^iarxist manner (maybe that's where Gary Perly get the idea), and he 
submitted a list of proposed character witnesses which included, apai-t from Glorious 
Pierre, a number of members of the faculty of the U. of Ivj . , Gerard Pelletier, who was 
then Parliamentary Secretary to External Affairs Niinister Paul Martin ("I have been 
caught in the generation gap"), and iV;arcel Pepin, who runs the iViaolst-controlled 
Gonares d es Svndicats Nationaux (Congress of National Trade Unions). Vallieres was 
convicted in April of last year, and sentenced to life imprisonment. The following 
month, iV.ay, a couple of dozen well-known actors and singers staged a benefit at 
^iontrea^s Gesu Theatre under the auspices of secessionist singing star, Pauline 
Mien, and Jacques Larue-Lanqlois. a producer with the Canadian Broa dcas ting Cor- 
poration (Radio-Canada) who was fired last year, and alleged by Anthony Malcolm to 
be a contact man between Quebec's national socialists and the American Black Panther 
Party, which is suspected of providing financial aid and training in arson and sabotage 
to FLQ terrorists (the Demers trial revealed that Vallieres and Gagnon travelled 
extensively abroad, and often the FLQ held top level strategy meetings in that historic 
quaint old Quebec town, Rochester, N.Y., where contact with the Black Panthers woui 
have been absurdly convenient). Called "Poems and Songs of Resistance" (why not 
"of Lihei-^tion"?), the money to be raised by the bene^fit was to finance Vallieres' appp 
for a new trial. Among the rUbrlug.iiPhe.i paitidpnuts were such niti<=i-ic luminaries at 
the actress GiueH:o T.^fondal, Helene loisoll*^, and Lionel ViUcjrenve. The tone of th: 
o'.ll.^ rircus was set in the opening tableau: "All tlie nrtJi=ts stood on stage 
listening to an actor recite the words of the judge who senteuccd Vallieres. And then 
one by one, each artist spoke the names of all those who, since 1960, have been sent 
to jail for t^uorist activities in support of the separatist movement. . .The sentiment 
r=ii fiojii simple independence to revolution that would establish a socialist state in 
Qnobec (for which there was mention of Castro and Mao and the rest of today's revol- 
utionary lifiioes)," (Cf. Gordon Sheppard. TELEGRAM, June 1, 196;;). The fascist 
fervour of the audience knew no bounds when the Qn^vmjo r du Nouveau Jazz Libre swun 
into a Qroovy jazz rendition of that famous old Freuch-Canadian folk song, L'Internatic 


Last September 24th (1969), five Justices of the Quebec Court of Appeal ruled 
that Vallieres be granted a new trial (for which no date has yet been setX Now repre- 
sented by hotshot lawyer, Robert Lemieux (who last spring defended convicted terror- 
ist Pierre-Paul Geoffrey, who had pleaded guilty to all charges when arraigned, and 
who has been granted leave to appeal his sentence of life imprisonment by the Court 
of jippeal), Vallieres had subpoenas served on Messrs. Trudeau and Pelletier to testif 
on his behalf in a hearing of his petition for bail, and it must have shaken these gentJ 
to have this nagging ghost pop up again to place their respectable "Liberal" image in 
jeopardy once more. Subsequently, on October 6th, Judge Paul Trepanier entertained 
a petition from the President of the Quebec Bar, no less, Maltrejean M.artineau , 
acting for the PN. , requesting that his illustrious client be dispensed from complying 
with the subpoena, which dispensation seems to have been granted. (It is amusing t 
note, parenthetically, that on Sept. 17th last, the Union Nationale Cabinet in Quebec 
city named Trudeau a Queen's Counsel in honour of his "26 years of law practice". 
These venerable old Duplessistes must have had their tongues in their cheeks; in hi, 
whole lifetime Trudeau has never opened a law office, and has practiced about as muc 
law, in those 26 years, as the late Robert F. Ken nedy d id in his lifetime, l.e,, hardh. 
any at all*. Quoth Quebec Minister of Justice, Remi Paul: "It simply means that the 
Bar of the Province of Quebec is proud to see one of its members in such high office." 


If this dispensation established some kind of legal precedent (which it may 

- 10 - 

very well have done), it could scarcoly be more astonishing than the fact that a Prime 
iVilnister of Canada should be subpoenaed as a character witness in a bail hearing for 
a convicted collectivist killer, whose anarcho-statist crimes have been committed in 
the course of his seditious services in a fascist fifth column pursuing the anti-Western 
purposes of the Red warlords of the Socialist Camp.' 

Trudeau's affidavit requesting dispensation from his legal obligation to appear 
was Interesting, to say the least: "I am unable to provide any evidence whatsoever 
which would be pertinent to the petition of the defendant, Pierre Vallieres; I do not 
believe I have seen or spoken with the defendant for five years; The only times I had 
occasion to speak with him involved the magazine CITE LIBRE, which the defendant 
managed for some months; I did not know the defendant before having met him in the 
circumstances mentioned in the preceding paragraph..." Brave words, bravely uti-f-x.^/i, 
but it is surely stretching credulity to the point of absurdity to expect us to believe 
that Vallieres got the job at CITE LIBRE, Trudeau's pet project for a number of years, 
by answering a Help V\/anted ad in LA PRESSE.' In his effort to strike the right muted 
key in his affidavit, Trudeau, as usual, overdoes it, and plunges into bathos with the 
same grand style he made famous during the election campaign at Motel swimming 
P^'^^s' "I am a mere citizen, and as such, subject to all the laws of mv country, but. 
my aBpearance in court for the hearing of the defendant's application would cause me 
to waste, uselessly, a part of the time which I must devote to my duties. . ." How's 
that for humility? "a mere citizen. . .subject to all the laws of my country" 1 
{Vancouver papers , please copy 1 ). 

Needless to say, this did not go down too well with Maitre Lemieux, who 
nevertheless demonstrated some surprising naivete (or pretended to): "How can the 
Prime Minister ask to be excused from testifying? He doesn't know the questions we 
wish to ask him", which is precisely why, of course, Trudeau is bending every effort 
to avoid being dragged to the witness stand*. when he attempted to argue the cogency 
of his client's bubpoena, Lemiaux didn't get too far with Judge Trepanier. "At the 
time of the changeover of authority in the management of CITE LIBRE", he began, "we 
are in possession of a speech which Pierre-Elliott Trudeau. . . ", at which point the 
Judge cut him off, asserting that he would hear all arguments in the course of the 
hearing, and then decide if the PM's 'tiresence" at tJie hearing would be required. 
(Everyone, but everyone, is trying so hard to be considerate to h/iere Citizen Trudeau, 
to spare him any avoidable embarrassment.' ). 


Annoyed at the Court's apparent acceptance of Trudeau's disclaimer, JVlaitre

From Our iViontreal Correspondent 

honinn /o "'^ ^ ^^"^ "'?''' ^^^ ^'^''"'^ ^^'^ ^°'^ leftists, anafchists and outside agitators 
hoping to get a piece of the action at the expense of the local police and population. 

Montreal City Executive Chairman Luclen Saulnler, a widely-respected 
tinancier and administrator, took a shot at the do-good-for-nothing Company of Young 
Canadians who, he charged, were at the source of some of the city's current rampages, 
uesar^havez, who claims to speak for thousands of so-called under-paid and over- 
worked grape pickers in California, came to town to drum up sympathy but ended 

up with indifference and even criticism on the part of the local populace. The 
Vietnam moratorium day acUvlties fizzled out. 

Even Cheddi Jagan, Jr., son of Guyana's illustrious commie, Cheddi Jagan, 
was complaining that things got so tough for him since his involvement with the infamov 
ilr ueorge Williams University rioting of last February that he can't find a job to live 
on. He claims that prospective employers turn him down flat when he tells them who 
he is. And the cruelest cut of all: he's been suspended from the university pending 
the outcome of the whole affair in court. 

All this, together with some deft police work in stemming a planned leftist- 
separatist demonstration in early October, has left the liberals, pseudo-liberals and 
kindred souls pretty shaky. The idea that Montreal may be entering a period of some 
tranquility and stability must be hard to take. 

Heaviest blow, of course, came from Saulnier who called for a Royal Comwlssic 
investigation into the activities of the CYC, long a target of criticism for stepping 
out of Its defined limits. Saulnier, in one of the harshest speeches he's ever made, 
pulled no punches about his feelings on the JYC , strongly suggesting that some 
members of its local group may well have been involved in mapping out some of the 
kby now; well-known Montreal riots . Even If his request for a commission probe goes 
unheeded (as it apparently will be), Saulnler's status is established enough to raise 
some serious questioning about the outfit. 

As a matter of fact, immediately following Saulnler's charges, scores of mayors 
throughout Quebec followed suit, asking that the CYC be investigated and/or get out 
of town. 

The CYC was set up by mankind-loving Lester Pearson, the former Prime 
Minister, purportedly to help out the underprivileged. Here is an example of some of 
the workings of the outfit in Montreal. Last August the local office of the CYC distri- 
buted a pamphlet among beleaguered, low-income residents of a slum area known as Lit' 
Burgundy. The leaflet warned that 800 families face eviction from their homes and 
called for the residents to fight for their rights . (The area Is being rehabilitated) . 

"Citizens of Little Burgundy," trumpeted the pamphlet, "800 families will soon 

receive a visit of a city investigator. 
Be Scared.' Fight for Your Rights 1 

It might be you. What to do? Be Careful.' Don' 

The leaflet goes on to list six "rights" the residents can use. Including the 
power to demand the city find evictees new homes before moving them. "The city has 
an obligation to do so," the people were told. 

Though the name of the CYC is not on the pamphlet, there are instructions to 
call a certain number which turned out to be the CYC headquarters here. The city 
established that it was from this office that the pamphlet was issued. 

As sympathetic as the leaflet appeared to be, the fact is that it contained a 
bunch of lies, and the CYC knew it.' The facts are that there were never any plans to 
evict the COO - or any families at all; that the CYC either knew, or should have known, 
mat its Awn warning was platantly untrue (some weeks before, the city sent the CYC ful' 
aetalls of its plans for the area); that even when informed of their error, the CYC activis' 
did not see fit to print a retraction (while privately conceding their Emistake", they refu 
publicly to let the scared and angry residents in on the secret); that such unfounded see 
tactics have been partially successful in sabotaging city efforts to set up co-operation 
and rapport with local residents (it was only after an exasperating education campaign t 
the city was able to win the confidence of the residents once again). 

- 12 - 

Bv now, uie residents cf Little Burgundy are pretty fed up and disgusted with 
the CYC and its hypocritical policy. Residents of other down-trcdden areas have 
expressed the same sentiment. They note that the CYC is capitalizing on the fears 
And icni'vance «£ the slum tenants, that the CYC has given some of them misleading 
legal advice; that the CYC has abandoned many when the situation proved difiicult. 
And all this is being cawled on with the taxpayers' money. 




A Int of us are Just plain ordinary people. And, according to Abraham Lincoln, 
God must love us for He made so many of us, and that's some consolation in these 
days. We are Just "averagees", not gifted with "expertise". Expertise at high level 
only covers shallow-patedness. As in the case of Humpty Dumpty in Alice's Advent- 
ares in Wonderland « words may mean Just what they are wanted to mean, not what 
they mean to us. So w^ erdlnary people don't have this cift of using a lot of words 
to say nothing, or to hide actual intentions. We have a direct approach to things. 
y»/e shy away from such high-sounding words as "psychedelic" and "teach-ins" and 
"workshop" and "dialogue" for they are non-sensical and sound highbrow. We believe 
in saying what you mean and meaning what you say; although, being of the lesser 
breed, it would appear that we are merely born to pay taxes when we come to man's 
status. We know, of course, that in this year of grace 1969, we don't have the 
slightest say in what our government does with our money. We certainly have nothing 
to say about Canada's domestic and external policies. However, being slower thinker. 
we do like things to add up. We like two and two to make four, and if they don't we 
admit to being puzzled. We Uke to get right to the reasons for things. DlalecUcs 
and semanUcs may be alright for the classroom, but they are outside the ruminations 
of our Inte.Mect. Yes, we admit it, we like to grasp the 'whys' and 'wherefores' of 

Actually, there are things that bother us terribly. In our bovine way, we size 
up sltuaUons and come to certain conclusions. When we find that our thinking doesn't 
work out the way things are, we are very unhappy. 

To put the natter very plainly, we expect governments and parliamentary 
institutions, in their national and international relationships to be consistent. If 
they are not, it bothers us. Vve get annoyed. We get irritated with double-talk. 
We don't like to think that we are the victims of news -suppress ion or double-dealing, 
or anything like that. After all, we are part of Canada. As a matter of fact we saw 
this in 1936-39, and it got us into a tremendous amount of trouble. We have a feel- 
ing that millions who were alive in those days, and were the eventual victims of that 
same double-talk which abounds today, if they could get through to us, would say 
something like this: "For goodness sake, can't you see that what happened then is 
repeating itself today, but what are you doing about it? " Yes, that's just it. Things 
are Just lop-sided. \\/e ordinary people like things to be consistent, but that consist- 
ency is just not there. Vve don't have to be brilliant to feel that in the past few years 
tnings have occurred which we feel are sinister, and, although some are past, we are 
quite sure they are going to loom up large in the very near future. 

For instance, every so often Canada puts herself on record as fully siirporting 
the United Nations Organization; Canada also follows the line of Mr. Arnold Smith of 
the Commonwealth Relations Committee, who persistently closes his eyes to facts and 
looks at things through Mjoscow*s eyes. This causes us a lot of heart-burning, because 
it means that UNO, the U.S.A., the U.K. and Canada, are either totally ignorant of 
the true state of affairs today, or are being led up the garden path, or that there is 
some sinister, ulterior motivt^ beliitid it all, some conspiracy or other. We can't get 
away from the fact that in this world there is something a<>lng on tliGt df>ei!n't make 
sense. In other words, it must have c^ntiol plnnning. 

Once again we read that Ottawa is considering imposing total sanctions, a 
complete embargo on Rhodesia. That is the sum and substance of the vapourings of 
Trudeauvniks to the Commons. Reminds us of the big bullies at school who tried to 
push the new boy around, if and only if he were smaller than they. So C inada joins 
the international chorus of the UNO, the U.S.A., the Soviets and Britain, in condemn- 
ing little Rhodesia because (so they say) she is a menace to world peace. Why? 
because she is a police state and Africans are suppressed! You'd think the Americans 
would at least have the sense to keep qw*€t, seeing that their own 'Black' situation 
is something of a nightmare. But not America'. As the apostle of anti-colonialism.

We are going to stress general anticommunism. The Trotskyltes who are

Our march will accent the theme "O Canada, we stand on guard for thee." \^e 
will stress a defence of traditional estern values against the potheads, porno- 
graphers, and defeatists so richly represented on the other side. Vve will stand 
for individual pride and initiative against Cig Erother weLarism . Vv e will stand 
for the average proaucing working man who is sick of seeing his monev seized ^y 
the loodsucking tax-eollector to be given to subversive, no-good oums, like 
the Company of Young Canadians. In short, we will stress the self-reliance and 
Individual res pons i^jility that juilt our nation and we will hold these ideas up 
against the destruction, surrender and orgiastic amorality of the New Left.

witches' brew in Indochina, and they won't listen to reason in regard to Formosa 
It would be stupidity of the first magnitude to allow them to shoot their wav into 
the UN from which forum they could propagandize the other Asiatic nations', form 
a common anti-Western front with India and sow the seeds of disunity among the

What --lied us was that many Canadian officials -nd citizens woulc. oc

that no loyal Cma-^dian should join in this obsCene celebration of

Soviets each ;"cvombor 7 to .munch caviar and gulp vodka - proauc-a

The events of November 15, described by the photos in this issue of STRAIGHT 
mark a turning point in E.B.S. history. 

We were organized as never before. Nearly a month bef'^re, a select squad 
of members met and trained to act as a hard core of leaders. In the weeks preceding 
the counter-demonstration, we held several meetings to make signs, ^e had an 
unprecedented number of signs of high quality. We assembled a large number of 
E.B.S. and Canadian flags (visible in some of the pictures). Most important, squads 
of eager members got on the phone or wrote to the ethnic anti-communist press, to 
impress upon friends and members alike the necessity of making a strong showing on 
November 1 5 . 

We were successful. A high-spirited crowd of nver two hundred assembled 
rutside the U.S. consulate. This time, though, our tactics differed from those of 
the past. In times gone by, we defended the U.S. consulate and forced the Vietniks 
to march around us. This time we went on the offensive. When it became clear 
that the Vietniks were going to City Hall first, we determined to get there ahead of 
them and to confront them. "Reds Out.' " was our slogan. We ringed the speaker's 
podium in City Hall Square and confronted the dumbfounded leftist hordes with our 
strident cry "Reds Out.' " It was a mistake for us to give up this place. Necessity - 
the fact that cur ranks had been broken in several places - dictated a move to the 
sidelines to re-group. We chased a break-away bank who ran over to the U.S. 
Consulate. This was a waste of time. We returned to City Hall Square and then 
really began to "lay it on" the left. We chanted and whistled and drowned out their 
speakers. The guts and militancy of our ranks shatterea the confidence of the Left. 
We were outnumbered 12 to 1, yet the noisy revolutionaries and the many followers 
of Chairtnan Mau Mao, except in a few cases, dared not resort to the violence which 
they are always advocating. We cannot underestimate the psychological vict Ty our 
militance won for us. Yet, it would be a mistake to dismiss the Left as "paper 
tigers". Certainly, they dared not attack us. They are cowards . Nevertheless, 
they are violent when they think they can get away with it. Leaving a bomb in the 
night, harassing a defencoloss, stuttering liberal professor (as the New-Left Caucus 
did recently at U. of T.) - these are the types of violence the left enjoys. 

Finally, despite excellent coverage in the ethnic press, the Toronto press 
tried to play down the importance of our actions. Most comments avoided mentioning 
our numbers. The fact that our militant ranks are growing obviously upsets some of 
the opinion-makers; hence, their silence on that score. C.B.C. radio ignored our 
presence. C.T.V. mentioned us as "right-wingers" and "Birchers" and immediately 
trained their cameras on lofiiists who were mocking us by saluting Nazi-style and 
scrcjuming "Siec Heil.' ". They did not bother v^xplalning which group was which, 
leaving it to the -.•iewcr's Imagination. Agnew was right about the dolifacrato 
distortion practised by the press. Radio Stations C .H.U.M. , C.K.F.H., C.F.R.B., 
C.H.I.N., C.K.E.Y., all mentioned us , as did the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail 
the Telegram^ the U. of T.'s Varsity, and the Ryersonian. We were ignored in the 
communist Tribune, with good reason. After our Serbs got through ripping Red posters

One word can accurately describe the efforts of the lightweight 
leftists who organized Toronto's November 15th Vietnam Moratorium 
demonstration - failure. But it was not for lack of determination 
an the part of the ragtag fellow-travellers who assembled iinder 
the auspices of the local Trotskyites. Had it not been for the 
b.B.S, counter-demonstration, these duped nitwits would have succee- 
ded in creating the impression that their cause was that of "peace" 
in Vietnam. But the E.B.S. disrupted their well-made plans;, we 
brought to public attention the fact that there is. one group which 
is willing to stand up and be counted for decency and freedom. 

It all started about noon on Saturday, November 15th. The red 
rabble desecrated the seat of our Provincial government when they 
gathered and formed ranks at Queen's Park. An early contingent of 
E.B.S. members, already at the U.S. Consulate, could look northward 
on university Avenue and see the sick sight of these trained traitors 
assembling for their "peace" march. As we paraded in front of the 
Consulate carrying signs supporting a U.S. VICTORY in Vietnam, many 
members of the public stopped their cars on University Avenue to 
voice approval of our stand. Despite the cold, windy weather, pedes- 
trians pinned on the E.B.S, colours and Joined our ranks. 

It did not take too long for the red-lining i^ratorium marchers 
to make the trip from Queen's Park to City Hall, As the square 
filled with these squalid excuses for human beings, dogs and citl/t^-ns 
alike recoiled and snapped at the sight and smell. Their lefty 
leaders had previously set up a speaker's stand complete with sound 
equipment from which they planned to feed the motley mob a diatribe 
of Communist propaganda through the willing mouths of union .Ipaders 
and members of the clergy. But when the main body of the misfit 
marchers swarmed like so many cockroaches to a garbage dump, they 
found a surprise. The mobile E.B.S. had proceeded them and had 
rilT-P.-idy^ disrupted the organizing efforts of Joe Young and his 
irots.iyj.te .1 i^^iii-onnnts. The loud.-^popkers (when they worked) cou.Tdu'i-. 
Gon-ipete with the heckling coming from the out-nnmbored E.B.S. and 
otner docent citizens. As we shouted "REIvS OUT", some of the more 
violent red rabble vontod their fury on us by trying to grab our 
^.d.S. and Canadian flags. Toronto's finest carted off this attacking 
scum after we had rightfully h?ld our ground and disabled them. 

But it was the Mobolization Committee's speakers for whom we 
saved our big ammunition, Tliose pathetic performers reminded one 
of a side shov/ - wound up by their red masters, they strutted out 
th«.ir pro-flHt,orralned roles like so many puppets. Before they could 
get warmed up with their verbal defecations, the E.B.S. lonlcashed 
•-he deafening shrill of 5o. whistles - all blowing in unison.' This 
produced a run-down record player effect - wwhhrr..,.. For fear the 
mindless mass would lose its raison d'etre, the Trots quickly 
suDstitnted recorded j^jngle music for the drowncd-out speakers. That 
was the Lopjinning of the end. Without its red arm-bojidcd leaders 
providing direction, the haiiy leftists trudged off, carrying the 
remnants of their obscene placards. 

The E.B.S. had shown once again that it was willing to seize 
t He initiative and load the fight against anarchy and red accoramo- 
dationism uy r.n.t.inp ti,r; pnTvoy..j-jT , .f c;iir>h doctrines.

Beginning this month, STRAIGHT TALK! will carry as a regular feature a 
column by the Chairman of the Edmund Burke Society. This column will express 
both the personal views of the Chairman and the attitudes of the council. It will 
comment on developments within the E.B.S. and will offer suggestions for con- 
structive political action. 


Ass. Ed. 
** ** *♦ ** 


Subsequent to my appointment as Chairman of the Edmund Burke Society, I 
decided to suggest to you, the members, a few practical pointers for positive 
political activity. These proposals arise out of numerous conversations over the 
past few months, particularly those held among members during slack sessions at 
our booth at the C.N.E. 

In our handbook of beliefs and principles, What Is the E.B.S.? . we describe 
ourselves as "dedicated to dynamic conservative action. " 'Active' must be the 
adjective to describe every E.B.S. member. Because of demanding jobs, physical 
handicaps, or long distances from the Toronto centre of our activity, many members 
find regular E.B.S. activities impossible. 

The following two suggestions are addressed to all members; but are 
especially applicable to those out of town. 

First: wtite . Parliamentary sources report that never has Parliament seen 
finch giass roots interest, expressed through letters to M.P.'s and Senators. Much 
of this is coming from the growing con.<5er5ratlve, anti-comiiiuniPt movement in this 
country. Members of Parliament count letters like movie stars count fan mail. 
Liberal M.P.'s have been told to pass legislation both in committee and in Parliament 
exactly as it comes down from the Cabinet. They are, therefore, virtually unthink- 
ing rubber stamps for the Trudeaucrats, The only way they can be scared into 
independent and more responsive behaviour is through pressure. Only if your 
M.P. fears that unless he speaks up against the "hate bill" , against recognition 
of Red China, against a id to C.Y.C. subversives, and for lower taxes and a more 
militant anti-communist foreign policy, he will not be re-elected. 

A few pointers about letters. Keep them short. Your ideas stand out much 
more clearly In a brief letter than In a long, rambling epistle. Stick to one or, at 
most, two points. Ask a question. This will usually insure that you receive a 
reply. If you receive a reply that such and such a thing is "under study" or "being 
reviewed", write back to inquire about the results of the study and how your M.P. 
personally feels about it. The "under study" etc. answer is usually just a soapy 
dodge to prevent you from knowing your M.P.'s real views on the matter. If he 
tries this evasion, let him know that you know he's a phony. 

Send a copy of your letter not only to your M.P., but to the Federal Minister 
in charge of the area you are interested in. For example, a complaint about the 
Company of Young Canadians should be sent to Gerard Pelletler who is responsible 
for it, as well as to your M.P. It is also helpful to send a copy of your letter to 
one of the more aggressive opposition leaders. Among these I suggest John 
Dlefenbakcr P.C ., Mr. Real Caouette and Gilbert Rondeau, Creditistes, All mail 
can be addressed to your M.P., % The House of Commons, Parliament Buildings, 
Ottawa, Ontario. 

A slightly revised copy of your letter should also be sent to your local 
newspaper. Again, brevity and clarity will produce better results than length 
and verbal overkill. 

My second suggestion involves stickers and bumper stickers. The E.B.S. 
has a largo supply of both. I urge you to use a bumper sticker on your car and to 
invite your friends to do likewise . Our two best sellers are "Support Your Local 
Police" (In both decel and bumper sticker - 25<^ each) and "Socialism - Cancer of 
Liberty - Never Worked." These slogans along with many others are available 

- 10 - 

from us 3t a cent apiece. Every member should use stickers on his correspondence 
and should leave them in public places. Each sticker has our name and address 
printed on it. V\^idespread use of these stickers hulps to spread our ideas and to 
publicize our name. They have also been influential in attracting several recruits. 
We will be pleased to send you a selection of stickers post-paid for 25 cents.

Canada today, 



F. Paul Fromm, Chairman. 

P.S. You can get a copy of this infamous bill free by writing to us. 

The members of the Edmund Burke Society vigourously oppose passage of 
Bill C-3, the so-called "hate-bill". Few measures in recent history have been 
opposed by more distinguished people; few bills have been advanced by more 
i.i.-s?;iur, niirl political expodioncy; and few have been less necessary. 

NEED? Bill C-3 purports to attempt to restrict "the dissemination of varieties 

of 'hate propaganda* in Canada." Is this necessary? Is the existence of the govern- 
ment threatened by such writings? Obviously not. Present laws already adequately ^ 
restrain any person who attempts to take his dislikes out of the realm of words and put 
them into arson or physical violence. This is as it should be. But a man has the 
right to his likes and dislikes and to their expression, tf most of the "hate literature" 
is childish, paranoid, or undocumented, then it will be, and has been, universally 
rejected. Nearly a decade of pamphleteering has gained the Canadian Nazi Party a 
burgeoning membership of what - six people J 

In place of the money and arm-twisting that the Canadian Jewish Congress and 
other pressure groups have used in the past few years to assure passage of this bill, 
the cause of freedom would be sorved better if they devoted their energies to publish- 
ing refutations of "hate literature" and of promoting their own views. Any group that 
is attacked has every right to reply and counter-attack. A free exchange of ideas - 
the good, the bad, and the frivolous is the mark of a freo society. Crackpot ideas 
will, and have enjoyed little support in an atmosph.>io of free dlsciission, where their 
absurdity will soon be rejected, 

GENOCIDE? C-3 will send a Canadian citizen to jail for five years for advocating 

"genocide" . This is ironic. The Canadian gcveinment does very little about real 
genocide in Biafra and sits silently by v^Lilo Hip U.S.S.R. commits genocide in the 
Ukraine and in th^ R-'lric tit^trs. 

- II - 

The bill ambiguously defines genocide as "deliberately inflicting. . .conditions 
of life (against any identifiable group) calculated to bring about its physical destruc- 
tion." Would support of the Arabs in the Middle East, therefore, fall under the 
definition of genocide? 

HATE? The Trudeau government also proposes to jail for two years Canadiai 

who "wilfully promote hatred or contempt against any identifiable group." Identifiable 
groups only include racial, ethnic, or religious ones; so, ironically, it is perfectly 
legal to hate capitalists or hard-working taxpayers, C-3 never tells us what consti- 
tutes "hatred" or "contempt". Nearly any strong opposition could be so construed. 

The repression inherent in this bill makes it a criminal offence to incite 
hatred or contempt against a group "whore such incitement is likely to lead to a 
breach of the peace." Again, "likely" is a matter of considerable interpretation. 
An unruly hostile mob could make any unpopular speaker a victim of this bill. Is this 
the "Just Society", the politics of participation? 

Upon sworn information alleged "hate-literature" may be confiscated until a 
court trial and all. appeals are over. Even if no conviction is obtained, this bill 
provides a political weapon to harass people who dare discuss controversial matters 
of race or religion. Would a Canadian Bernadette Devlin or Ian Paisley be jailed? 
Would a person advocating a restricted immigration policy not be guilty of hatred? 
We remember that House Leader Donald MacDonald called literature critical of 
Trudeau "hate literature" during the last election. This 'hate' merely documented 
Trudeau' s socialist background, which he has never repudiated, and urged: 
assassination? revolt? - Noj Our pamphlet urged the simple exercize of one's 
democratic right - to vote "no" to Trudeau. Yet, the House leader of the party 
introducing this bill called such an innocuous suggestion "hate". 

Political passion and expediency could easily turn this bill into a Frankenstein 
weapon of suppression. 

Please, Mr. M.P., take a chance. Let's keep Canada a free and open 
society. Don't turn the 'Just Society' into a gagged society. Vote no on the

In our issue fcr September-October, we published the text of our formal 
request to the Department of National Health and ^' elfare for a grant of half a million 
dollars (to match that being awarded to Nova Scotia's Black United Front) in order to 
make it possible for the Edmund Burke Society "to expand and intensify its work in the 
direction of translating 'participatory democracy' from the realm of rhetoric tc concrete 
means by which people could be taught to participate in the democratic processes of 
our civic and communal life with maturity, intelligence, and a real hope of not only 
obtaining redress of their grievances, but of doing so in such a way as to be able to 
take real advantage of all of their civil and political rights and opportunities under 
the Law." Under date of September 26th, we received the following reply, postmarked 
October 2nd: 

September 26, 1969 

Dear Mr. Andrews, 

This is in reply to your letter of September 13, 1969 to the Honourable John Munro. 
This Department makes grants for experimental projects dealing with activities in the 
welfare field. These grants are not available for the type of activity proposed by 
the Edmund Burke Society, 

In regard to your questions about the Black United Front of Nova Scotia, it would 
appear that there has been a great deal of misunderstanding concerning federal assistar. 
to that organization for a demonstration project. 

The Black United Front was organized by the black community of Nova Scotia and is 
representative of all black communities in Nova Scotia, The council responsible for 
the activities of the organization was elected at a recent constituting meeting of 
representatives from the black communities in the Province. The board of directors 
responsible for leadership and for the actual conduct of the project and activities was 
in turn elected by the council. I am informed that Ivir. Rocky Jones is not a member of 
the board and, to the knowledge of this Department, there is no person on the board 
who at any time has had an association with the organization known as the Black 
Panther Party. 

The project activities planned are of a highly constructive nature. They are being 
undertaken with the approval and co-operation of the Province and steps have been 
taken to provide an official structure for liaison between the Provincial Welfare 
Department and the Black United Front. 

This project is based on the belief that people di ould have a greater degree of respons- 
ibility and opportunity to identify their own social and economic problems and to seek 
solutions to them. Through such involvement it is planned to assist balck people to 
make more constructive and extensive use of resources already available. The goal 
is to break the social and economic poverty cycle that these people have lived in for 
over 200 years so that they can be productive and contributing members <^t their 

The project was approved as a demonstration project within the established program 
of Vv'elfare Grants. All such projects must meet the normal conditions and criteria 
established for experimental welfare projects. In each project a specific plan of 
activity and budget are initially agreed upon and the continuation of support is 
dependent on the organization in question adhering to the project aa designed and 
the expenditure pattern in the approved budget. 

I regret that this Department cannot be of more assistance to your organization, 
am not av/are of any other federal government department or agency which makes 
grants for the kind of activities outlined in your letter. 

Yours sincerely, 

Ian Howard, 
Executive Assistant.

About the only thing that is clear and unequivocal in Mr. Howard's letter 
is the Department's rejection of our request for a grant; the rest is a mishmash of 
vague, imprecise, evasive, and quostion-begging jargon in the best bureaucratic 
tradition . 

Take the matter of the Black United Front, for example. Mr. Howard states 
quite categorically that the BUF "was organized by the black community of Nova^ ScotJa 
and is representative of all black communities in Nova Scotia... " The Front was 
formed on November 30th, 1968, yet almost two months later (January 23, 1969), a 
delegation of its leaders met with Manpower and Immigration Minister Allan MacEacher 
("Our efforts, of course, are directed at keeping to a minimum the danger of conflict, 
with considerations of free speech") in what the Canadian Press described as a "searc 
of moral and financial support for the development of their conc e pt of black power. 
Both sides called the meeting a good start toward develop m ent of the front as a rep- 
resentative organization for Nova Scotia Negroes." This would seem to indicate that ^^ 
the BUF bosses did not consider their "front" (and it does seem to be more of a "front" 
than a real organization) as being representative of Nova Scotia's Negro community 
when they had such a set up the previous November, nor even in January when they 
had such a cosy chat with Allan MacEachen; on the contrary, they appear to have 
made it quite clear to the CP that they were merely making a "start" in the direction 
of developing a representative organisation. Obviously, someone is lying: Mr.Howar 
says it "was organized by the black community and is representative of all black 
communities in Nova Scotia", while the CP reports almost two months after its foundinc 
that its leaders and an important Minister of the Cabinet are agreed that it is just 
making "a good start" in the direction of becoming representative. Now, either 
Mr. Howard is telling the truth, and the CP has grossly, one might almost say 
sppctacularly distorted and misrepresented the meeting with MacEachen, or, which 
seems more likely, the CP is reporting truthfully and accurately, and Mr. Howard is 
merely retailing the specious, mythological rationalisations of his Department, with 
that careless disregard for truth with which the Trudeau government is making us 
altogether too familiar. There is no third possibility. No one has questioned the 
accuracy of the CP report; on the other hand, the public record of the BUF's un- 
representative character has not been seriously challenged, not even by its own leader; 

How can Mr. Howard assert that BUF was "organized by the black community 
of Nova Scotia end is representative of all black communities in Nova Scotia" in the 
face of the public repudiation of BUF by Mr. Ross Kinney ("We have leaders in the 
area who were not recognized for the leaders that they are and we were not asked to 
take an active part in the United Negro Front "), the Moderator of the African United. 
Baptist Association of Nova Scotia , the largest Negro organization in the province? 
(Of. CP despatch from Halifax, Dec. 4, 1968). The mind boggles. Last June, when 
National Health & Welfare Minister John Munro took a little tour into Nova Scotia's 
Negro areas, he seems to have gone out of his way to offend the local press and 
municipal welfare authorities (and we do not necessarily hold any brief for the latter 
gentlemen), the first by refusing to have them along with his party (he was accompanied 
only by out-of-town, indeed, out-of-province reporters, whom he brought with him and 
on whose sympathies he could count) and the latter by ignoring them altogether, despite 
their legitimate interest in local welfare work and the federal government's intrusion 
into it. Reaction was not long coming and it was bitter: Munro's BUF was told to 
"stay the hell out of Preston" by Halifax County Councillors Percy Baker and Arnold 
Johnson, the latter being himself a prominent member of the Negro community. They 
told a Council meeting they were opposed to Ottawa's bankrolling of the BUF, which 
they described as "taking public monies and throwing it away on a private organization. 
(Cf. CP despatch from Halifax, June 18, 1969). 

Then we have Mr. Howard's evasive, somewhat questionable disclaimers re 
Rocky Tones ("an honest dialogue in integrated surroundings") and the American 
Black Panther Party. Of the former, he states "I am informed that Mr. Rocky Jones 
is not a member of the board,..", and of the latter "to the knowledge of this Depart- 
ment, there is no person on the board who at any time has had an association with the 
organization known as the Black Panther Party." 


Now, we must remember the pyramidal structure of authority in the BUF: the 
rank and file presumably elect the Council, which from its members elects the Board 

- Hi - 

cf Directors at the summit, and which is, In Mr, Howard's words, "responsible for 
leadership and for the actual condubt cf the project and activities,," Mr. Jones may - 
not be on the B.iard of Directors, but Mr. Howard has nothing to say re the prssibility 
of. his being on the Council, and he dows not deny that he is at least a member of the 
BUF . We know, of course, that he is nationally famous as a leader of BUF, S'-' Mr. 
Howard's attempted evasion of the issue is childish, even a little insulting. The CP 
despatch from Ottawa last January (vide supra) stated that "The front was formed at 
a meeting Nov, 30 (1968) to get black Nova Scotians together f'^r th^ first time and 
bring them into contact with visiting members of the Black Panther Party, a radical balij" 
nationalist gr-^pn centred in California. Dr. (W,P,) Oliver called the Panthers the 
catalyst in the organization of Nova Scotia blacks.,." On November 24th, 1968, 
Black Panther leader T.D. Pawlev gave a press conference in Halifax follrwing a 
closed-door meeting with local Negroes including racist Rocky Jones , in which he 
stated that "there is very little help white liberals and moderates can give the party 
except 'money or guns'" (Cf. Special despatch from Halifax to TELEGRAM, headed 
PANTHERS SET UP N,S, GROBDP, Nov, 25, 1968). So it seems that Ottawa wUl supply 
the money, to the Halifax front, at any rate, and one can only speculate on how the 
BUF intends to obtain guns. Two days later, another special despatch to the TELEGRAi 
reported that "A confrontation between moderate leaders of the Negro community and 
Black Panther extremists will take place here Saturday, Two lieutenants of U.S, 
Militant Stokely Carmlchael have been in the city for the past week, . .Negro moderate 
Dr, W.P. Oliver,,. suggested the confrontation 'in order t^^ obtain the black concensus 
(sic)'". This "confrontation" with the Black Panthers was, in fact, the meeting which 
gave birth to what is now known as the BUF, and if Dr, Oliver has no qualms about 
admitting publicly the role of midwife played by the Panthers in that birth, how can 
Mr. Howard say In all honesty that "no person -^n the board... at any time has had an 
ass'-ciation with. , ,the Black Panther Party"? If his statement is literally true, it 
means that all the members of the board at the present time are people who were not 
present abany ^^f the meetings prior to and including that '^f Nov. 30th with the Black 
Panther representatives which launched the BUF. Is Dr. Oliver, then, not ^n the 
Board? And what would it prove if all the present Directors were unsullied by contact 
with the Panthers? Would it change the history of the origins of the BUF? What 
about the Council? J^axnd Is it also pure as the dirven snow? Does Mr, Howai-d 
really expect us to believe that Rocky Jones is not involved in the BUF? When Dr, 
Oliver urged, at the regular monthly meeting of the N pva Scptla Ass .->eiatlQn i pr the 
Advancem ent of Ooloured People held on Nov. 26th of last year, that "black people 
should come together and have dlajr'gues with the yonna people (BlacK P^Pthers) w ho 
are visiti ng In this community " , it was R«cky Jones who supported him and Insisted 
that it should be a segregated, all-Negr'^ affair. That is why the "confrontation" 
which was held four days later, giving birth to the BUF, was not held under the 
auspices of the Nova Scotia Association for the Advancement of C'^l.-ured People; the 
latter, you see, is a bl-raclal ("Integrated") organization. Messrs, Oliver and Jones, 
it seems, are determined to segregate Nova Scotia's Negr'-es, the better to Incubate 
the kind of Negro racism which is new a principle weapon in the hands ^f the fifth 
columns. In the course of his appearance on their. V, program, UNDER ATTACK,which 
Jones taped at the University of Toronto last February 26th, he made it quite clear that 
"his Black Power movement. , .has the same beliefs as the U,S. Black Panther m^vemen 
Two days later, in Saskatoon, he Indulged in a little debate with Patrick Walsh at a 
meeting of the Canadian League of Rights, In which he made it quite clear that the 
Black Panthers had set up the BUF In Halifax. This is what '-'ur money is being used 
to finance in Nova Scotia; "They're going to raise haHf , John Munro is reported to 
hav<5 wpoetiilated gleefully last June during his tour of N^va Sc^tlan Negi^ districts. 

Mr. Howard's letter makes it clear that h*s Department Is administering "an 
established program of Welfare Grants", which is interesting to knew, and, further, 
that "continuation of support" is envisaged, which would seem to Indicate that BtifF 
might continue to be subsidized on a permal)*»n^ ha.'Ji-'j/ n«*'^««"«'^l5- after it has blown 
the half million: 

The Halifax situation has undertones which bode ill for the Negro community 
in Nova Scotia, As the TELEGRAM reported on Nov, 25, 1968, Halifax Negroes fear 
"that a tightly knit group of Black Power adv oates was planning to press more moderat 
Negroes into either silence er service In the movement", and with all the federal 
welfare goodies boing put lui-o the hands of precisely that "tightly knit group" to disper. 
whom they will, they will be in a ponu-ion to command ebedt^uoo and conformity in the 
best tradition of Tamany Hall. Mir, Howard's sanotlmoulous pap abcut "the belief that 
people should have a greater degrwp of r«Rp< nBlbllity and opportunity to identify their 
own s«cial and economic problems and to seek solutions to them" is Just feo much 
Trudeauvnik hypocrisy since Ottawa is not dealing with "the people" in this affair. 

. 15 - 

but has gonfi over their heads, or at least by-passed them, in '-rder to do business 
with "a tlcjhtly knit group of Black Power advocates" who are despised and repudiate. 
by the people, and who were convened on a senega ted basis by the foreign racists 
r: the Blaclc Panther Party, It is the collectivlst klatsch which has received the 
Royal nod (and half a million dollars of our money) fr'^m Ottawa, not the 15,000 ]>o>va 
Scotian Negroes organized in their own legitimate organizations. 

The whole ploy is piously larded over with talk of "the socitil and economic 
poverty cycle that these people have lived in for over 2 00 years" almost as though the 
millions of white Canadian taxpayers were fat, oily millionaires and had been such for 
200 years 1 Economic distress has been known to afflict white workers, and it is 
hard to believe that, even in the "Just Society", only the Negroes of Nova Scotia 
require assistance! The entire province, indeed, the maritime provinces as a region 
represent an economically depressed area, a fact so commonplace that it is odd to 
have to make a point of it to a government of "wise men" and "philosophers"! Apart 
from aggravating factors of racial discrimination, the economic difficulties ©f the 
Negro Nrva Scotian are not essentially different from those of white Nova Sc*tians, 
and it would surely make more sense (and more justice! ) if the federal government were 
to spend our m«ney in trying to revive the dynamic spirit of corperation v/hich thiity 
years ago radiated from St. Francis S'avier University in Antigonish, which did teach 
the workers how to "identify their '^wn social and economic problems" as well as how

Mr. Howard's apparent concern for the plight of the N'-va Scotian Negro, as 
opposed to what one might expect to be a more impartial and objective concern for the 
people of the province as a whole, strikes a racially discriminatory note that seems 
to coincide with the Orwellian sophistry of Rocky Jones. In the course of his appeai-- 
ance on UNDER ATTACK, Jcnes is reported to have expressed the astonishing view 
that "although blacks and whites should have equal rights, blacks should have 
advantages (privileges?) to make up f^r the years they were at a disadvantage." In 
other words, all men (black and white alike) are equal, but some men (the blacks) 
should be more equal than others (the whites)! It is not difficultto understand why 
Jones and his ilk are not accepted by self-respecting Nova Scotian Negroes, for tiiB 
thesis that Negroes are such a lot of shiftless ninnies that they must be granted 
special privileges in order to make out, is insulting, and an oblique espousal of the 
classic racist commonplace that Negroes are ethnically inferior and socially 

There can be little doubt, then, of the racially discriminatory character of 
the Department's Welfare grants, and their unmistakable political orientation. W^ 
need not expect to hear rf similar grants being made to the Ontaria Tenan ts Ass'-c- 
iation, t he All 1;^ no q for Life, the Canadian Loyalist Movement. cr...The Edmund Burke 
Sccietv. The policy of the Department, then, is one of distributive injustice, with 
reactirnar/ overtones of a nature hithert'- unsuspected. It is scarcely a secret that 
the Fabians ccnsider the welfare state as "the transition from capitalism t*. Socialism" 
(Cf. Michael Stewr-^rf , M.P., "Labour and the Monarchy", FABIAN JOURNAL, March 
1952). Many people still accept the widely prevalent materialist myth that poverty 
is the cause of Leninism (despite a half century's experience cf the contrary) and so 
tend to acquiesce in the contemporary and accelerating drift toward increasing 
dependence •. ■ - 

upon the welfare state in the uncritical belief that it will alleviate the worst rig-^urs 
of eccnomic hardship and hence pr'-duce automatic sccial tranquility and political 
harmony. Ut'^plan? Naive? Perhaps, but there is evidence that <*ur Fabian rulers 
have other ideas in mind, which have nothing to do with the moral obligation to help 
our distressed neighbours Iv^cally, or in the "global village". Leste;LP-<?ais®D ("Well, 
I still have my dog") has been telling us that we must dcuble and triple our foreign 
aid to the underdeveloped oouutiios of the Third V/orld, and most of us have charitably 
assumed that his motives v^ere g.'-nerally altruistic. On the other hand, Trudeau's 
Minister of External Affairs, Mitrhp-ll Sharp, in a speech to the Conadian Manufact- 
urers Association last June, put the whole matter in a rather different, and possibly 
more sinister light, and it is a pity that it attracted so little attention at the time, 
"Some authorities", he said, "advance a political rationale for aid programs. This 
is that provision of funds and assistance, by reducing hunger and misery, has a 
stabilizing effect in the pooi»^i oc.nutiies since the people will have fewer issues tu 
fight about. Ft>i my part, I find this hard to accept, and repugnant in some of its 
aspects. First, woild history makes it abundantly clear that populations kept at or

the devel'^pment assistance they receive fr'^m us and fr^m •thers will give t^ the peopL

government," (Apparently, however, the embattled Biafrans and Vietnamese are exfclud. 
from these considerations.' ), Mi-re recently, at the Liberal Party's policy rr^nft^rpuce 
at Harris«n Hot Springs, B.C., he bluntly stated that Canada ought to give "aid to 
promote revolution which is very much needed." The kind af rev^iutl^n he has in 
mind is made clear when you consider the military training assistance Canada has beer 
giving to Trtalitarian Tanzania, which effecUvely helps tr keep the Leninist lid ©n in 
that unhappy land, and to frustrate any attempt at revrluticn on the part of the pe->ple. 
Canada pr-^vides the training, MAO pr^-^vides the military hardware, and the perple stn; 
lack "the sinews they need to rise and cast aside" the Leninist military dictatorship 
which now 'oppresses them. 


In his column f'-r Oct. 6th last, the canny Lub-^r T. Zlnk provides a highly 
probable interpretation of this thesis: "This ast'-'nishing passage", he writes, "seems 
t-> indicate that the Trudeau 'G'-'vemment's rati^^nale f-^r f'^reign aid is n'-'t based 
primarily rn the moral imperative to relieve human misery, but ^n a desire to help bull 
presumably reveluti'-^nary infra-structures in the developing countries." In other v/rrd 
foreign aid has less to dr with international charity r.T justice than it is a long term 
'^ff'-rt tc --vorthrrw the governments and social orders ^f the recipient countries i As 
applied to the domestic scene, then, does it not seem '-■bvl'^us that the Department -f 
National Health & VV4f, f are is less interested In breaking "the social and econ^^mic

building a subversive "infra -structure" in Nova Scotia's Negro community t^ "give 
the pe<-.ple the sinews they need to rise" and to "carry out effective action, p->litical 
or violent"? H-w else can --ne understand John iviunr^'s words, "They're g'^lng to 
raise hell.' "? 

This wh'-^le idea might seem less plausible were it n^t seen as part of the 
pattern of the dlriqlste dictatorship of "Pgrjiags'^ ^Illott Trudeau ("Governnjental 
instability, fragmentati'-n ^f the -'pp^sltion, the risk ^f 'losing -ne's vcte', are all 
minor dangers compared to the abdication r-f the mind t-- which Pearson is leading us") 
with its policy of extraordinary generosity towards ail kinds '-f red fifth columnists 
and anarchc-racists and their anti-Canadian, anti-democratic activities, e.g., the

By Our IVjontreal Correspondent 

There's this little triwn in Quebec's Eastern Townships, just north of the 
Vermont line. It's called Frelighsburg and it is said to be one of the finest apple- 
growing communities in the province. As a matter of fact, the growing of apples is 
its livelihood since nearly every wottcer in the area is in the business. 

Early in Novem.ber, 50 bnys and girls from NicGill University decided to 
invade this quiet little town to simiulate a "pacification". The point they wanted to 
illustrate, probably more for themselves than for the Frelighburgers, was what U.S. 
forces do when they move into a Vietnamese village seeking out Viet Cong or North 
Vietnamese guerillas. 

The poor folk in Frelighsburg didn't have a clue as to what was happening. 
As a m-atter of fact, the "pacifiers" didn't identify their happy-hunting grounds until 
about 12 hours before blast-off time. v\^hen they finally let the name of the town out 
of the bag, local newspapers fell for the plot hook, line and sinker and sent reporters 
and "fotogs" packing. The CBC dispatched its normal army nf pinko sympathissrs . 
So the "pacification" of Frelighsburg got as much play in the local newspapers and 
TV as the real thing. 

The Montreal Star and The Gazette turned ever full pages to the phoney game, 
complete with pictures purportedly showing how the U.S. soldiers rape women, man- 
handle prisoners and make things difficult for all and sundry. 

The burgers of Frelighsburg thought the whole show v>7as too m-uch, and all 
the luar.i would say about the boys' and girls' act v/as that it put the good town on 
the map, for a day or so, at least. Some of the citizenry figured the whole thing was 
a good show from an acting point of view, and even applauded some of the p«/.-'ini^is. 
But taking it seriously they did not, since apple-grovi?ing is more pivfitablc than 
standing around all day watching a bunch of nuts doing theii" thing. 

Needless to say, the whole operation v/as one-sided, with the U.S. ci-'iiiing 
out second best. If the boys and girls vjere serious about the war and wanted to tell 
it like it was, it is safe to assume they v/ould have J^orlrayed both sides of the pictuio. 
5ut students will be students, and knocking the hand that feeds you is the kick these 

If the boys and girls were really perturbed about the Vietnam war they would 
have perhaps chosen a larger tov/n, since there are net enough people in Frelighsburg 
to fill the long mass (graves or trenches you have to dig. 

They would have brought plenty of rope to tie the wrists of thousands of peasa 
before mowing them down Vv^ith machineguns. They would have brought plenty of 
gasoline to set fire to people. Instead of glad-handing the major, as the Iv,cGill boys 
and girls did, they would have decapitated him; they would have disembowelled the 
parish priest instead of exchanging greetings; and they would have impaled the villagei 
instead of accepting their coffee. 

The good IVicGillians thought they had contributed enormous understanding of t] 
Vietnam war by their theatrc-in-the-street, which shows the sense of some students the 
days. Of course, the media, hoodwinked as it was in sending personnel and equipmen 
60 miles (120 both ways) to spend a complete day there (much of the press got overtime 
for this one), •.bought it was all to the good, too. 

Copy was slanted in favor of the phoney actors. Some of the papers played i^ 
Page 1 and one said the who.lp alf?5ir was a visual reminder of the sordidness of the war. 

what the daily press and t^UM-jpion had failed to point out was that these boys 
and girls were able to put en tiieir show witli<-nt fpar of rcrrlmlj:ation or suppression, the 
they were allowed tomove about crecly, even npiooCiuQ t'.ie normal state of affairs in the 
small town, that such a manifebcjcion could never, but never, even be thought of in a 
communist state. But some kidaies have lo learn the hard way, so someone should 
come up with a plan to get them to "pacify" a Soviet village or a Red Chinese hamlet 
and see how far they would get.

use "the bourgeois langu-?ge" are busy laying the tracks. 

Economic nationalism does not having its roots within the respon-

of those 'ho are fundamentally disloyal to the society whose benefits 
thev en.iov. Its message is carried by professors, stude ts, nolitici^is 
and newspaper editors; all those v/ho are leaet likely to be drawing 
unemplo^Tnent insur9nce when the inve^^tment c:.-'-^ital deserts Canada. A 
final word for our "economic nation"lists" is in order. Isn't it just 
another stran-e coincidence that those clamouring for socialist plan-

"What We've Been Doing 

The December issue of Straight Talk! was a demonstration issue. Lack of 
space prevented us enumerating the many other activities in which we were involved. 
Thus, this issue's "What We've Been Doing" contains quite a backlog. 

November 20 - Revolution Underw ay loaned for showing at St. Joseph's High 

School Islington. 

November 22 - Edmund Burke Society Council screens film, Sex-Education: 

Conditioning for Immorality. We decide to buy it. Vve like its balanced approach. 
E.B.S. is not against sex or sex-education. Vve do disapprove of sex- 
education that omits some standard of morality. We oppose the S.I. E.G. U.S. brand 
of sex education, which stresses fun and whoopee and omits the responsibilities of 
sexual activity. The Council endorsed this film's opposition to that sort of Sex- 
Education that holds up permissive Sweden as a model.' We see this kind of Sex-Ed. 
as an attack on the family unit. A dissolution of the family unit is in the Interest of 
Communism because strong family ties breed loyalties stronger than those owed to 
the State. The E.B.S. Council especially endorsed the film's emphasis on respons- 
ibility. If parents don't want their children brainwashed by shoddy Sex-Ed. courses 
they should protest; but, getting a poor Sex-Ed. course removed from a local school 
is not enough, the parents must fill the vacuum with good, solid information and 
moral guidance. 

M^M:- Anyone wishing to r eceive our Instructive packet of information on Sex- 

pleas e write and enclose 35<^ to E.B.S.. P.O. Box 544. Scarborough, Ontario. 


November 27 - Having decided to promote the Sex-Ed. film, the Council launched 

a campaign to arrange a showing before Toronto's Board of Education. Our able 
administrator, D.C. Andrews, co-ordinated the many phone calls and the letter- 
writing ne'^ossary to fulfil the bureaucratic regulations that govern requesting per- 
mission to speak to our elected representatives. Several Young Socialists were at 
the Board meeting to present their views on another subject. When they heard our 
purpose announced by the Board Chairman, they laughed in snide, super-sophi-'^ticaHon 
at our concern for so outmoded a concept as family ties. We had the pleasure of 
seeing them silenced at the meeting. They were told to present their brief another 
time. Shouting and threatening they left the hall. Our film was well-received by 
the trustees and both the Globe and iviall and the Toronto Telegram mentioned this 
showing. ^^ Before she had seen a dozen frames, a truly open-minded woman snarled 
"fascist: " at one of our members, like some starved hound that bays as it smells 

November 29 - For an hour on this Saturday afternoon, a dozen E.B.S. members 

Joined with our allies in the Serbian and Croatian communities in protesting Tito's 
tyranny in Yugoslavia. Our spirited demonstration outside the Yugoslav consulate 
here in Toronto made the quiet residential neighbourhood resound with our battle-cry, 
" Reds Outl " Our activity gained us new friends and respect in these two ethnic 
communities. While the politicians prattle about freedom, we're the group that is 
ready to act and fight for it. 

November 3q - Members of the Sisters of St. Joseph rented our Sex-Ed. film for 

use among their teaching staff. 

December 8 - E.B.S. December general meeting. An enthusiastic crowd watched 

Sex-Ed . and viewed a 4-mlnute colour film of our November 15 counterdemonstration 
against the Vietniks. F. Paul Fromm urged a letter-writing campaign to protest the 
proposed "hate-bill" (Write E.B.S. for a copy of this vicious bill). E.B.S. friends 
and members joined in the Christmas spirit and purchased a substantial quantity of 
anti-communist freedom literature, to be used as Christmas presents. 

December 16 - 

Vietnam Betrayal - an E.B.S. sponsored film shown to a Ukrainian 

December 17 - Chairman Fromm makes a 3 minute appearance on C.B.G. T.V's 

news-programme and presents our views on spx-education and plugs our Sex-Ed. 


January 10 - E. B.S. Council meeting. Treasurer, Joseph Genovese recaps 

1969. Our 1969 budget more than tripled over 1968. Conclusion: although our 
income has risen dramatically, so have our expenses and our activities. We are 
now running at a slight deficit. We need more money.' Members and friends, 
this means you .' 

January 12 - E.B.S. general meeting for January. Vietnam Betrayal film 

well received by members. A special collection to finance our anti-"hate bill" 
campaign netted a solid war-chest. 

Note for the month : Write to your local newspaper or M.P, to protest 

the proposed "hate-bill". Write to us for anti-"hate bill" pamphlets to 
distribute in your neighbourhood.

An associate member from Mount Forest, Ontario reports an interesting 
anecdote from that small town about 75 miles northwest of Toronto, Cur associate , 
who wishes to-re:T:ain anonymous, v/as instrumental in having banned from the local 
magazine stand the childishly obscene and dangerously subversive "Ramparts" 

So outraged was he at "Ramparts" that he showed it to Pastor Bonney of the 
First Baptist Church of Mount Forest. So outraged at the leftist rag was the Pastor 
that he brought it to the local Ministerial Association. So outraged was the 
Ministerial Association that it presented the magazine to Mount Forest Mayor 
Russell Neal. So outraged was Mayor Neal that he sought legal advice and laid 
"Ramparts" before the Town Council to be banned. So afraid to take a political 
stand was the Town Council that it refused to act. 

Mayor Neal read a sampling from "Ramparts" to a public meeting. 

So outraged at the obscenities were the townspeople that they took a petition 
to the Town Council, calling for the ban of the magazine. So outraged were the 
Town Councillors at "Ramparts" (and afraid of their angry constituents?) that 
they voted to ban "Ramparts" and all other "obscene, subversive literature" from 
the magazine stand of Mount Forest. The motion passed unanimously. 

Congratulations to our associate in Mount Forest. Now, are you folks 
up in Scotland, Ontario going to let Mount Forest outdo you?

- Adolph Hitler - 







Loolcinq Back 

As the Edmund Burke Society confidently enters 197 0, It is well to step 
and examine our progress during 1969. In general, 1969 was a year of expanding 
strength and growing activity for the E.B.S. Our budget nearly quadrupled ever 
its 1968 total. 

Looking back, five tide-marks can be seen as measures of our growth 
and improvement. 


FILiVIS; - 1969 was the year that v/e became, in a more professional 
way, an adequate education group. With film strips and films, particularly 
Revolution Underway, we held dozens of meetings in high schools, with interested 
citizens, and with various ethnic groups. The films paid for themselves and offered 
us expanding opportunities for meeting people - people, who might never have come 
to an ordinary E.B.S. meeting. 

BOOKS; - Also part of our expanding educational efforts, the E.B.S. 
acquired a wide selection of paperbacks. Not only were these sold at our own 
meetings, but they accompanied us to film showings and to our large anti-communist 
freedom display at the C.N. E. 

C N . E . - This, of course, was cur highpoint of sustained effort in 
^969. For over two weeks, the Edmund Burke Society manned its own booth at the 
Canadian National Exhibition. We were able to meet large numbers of the general 
public with our anti-communist displays and books. The extensive preparation and 
the co-opeiation solicited and received from many ethnic communities indicated the 
growth of our hardened core of effective freedom -fiohters and the growth of a 
functioning, bioad-based alliance for responsible freedom. 

.",UNDER_AT TACK" - For one hour, on many television channels across 
Canada, the Edmund Burke Society was "under attack", in the person of cuv r].nhi<i.-.n, 
F. Paul Fromm. Fromm delivered a confident, competent, cool rpiLHiiJouce, that 
stymied the hysterical and carping students that were questioniug him, and won us 
new appreciation and friends across Canada. "Under Attack" generally has guests 
like ^lalcolm Muggeridge, James Mereditii, or John Diefenbaker. Our appearance 
shows our growing importance in Canadian politics. 

IN THE PRESS - A final mark of our progress in 1969 was our press 

relations. Under the competent direction of Jeff Gcodall, the E.B.S. caught the 
public eye with numerous position papers on a variety of issues - from condolences 
to the widow of slain Metro policeman, Goldsworthy, to a denunciation of the 
Trudeo^u government's $500,000 donation to the black-racist Black United Front in 
Nova Scotia, money that Health Minister Munro said would enable them to "raise 

This past year was certainly a year fr'o the E.B.S. to raise its own hell.

The Edmund Burke Society started the new year off right when a number of its 
members, supporters, and friends raided a showing of the prc-Viet Cong propaganda 
film, In The Year of The Pia. 

The place was the Toronto Workshop Theatre on Alexander Street, operated by 
partisans of the Vietnam Mobilization Committee, a Trotskyite Communist front. 
Several members of the Communist Party of Canada were also sighted, as was a high- 
ranking official of the Voice of Women. 

To the consternation of the red fifth columnists, film clips of General Curtis 
E. LeMay, the late Senator Joseph McCarthy, and American forces in the field were 
greeted by anti-communists with thnndercus applause, cheers, and rebel yells, 
while clips of Ho Chi Minh and his An-.'^iican suppciters were rightly put down with 
shouts of "murderer" and "tiaitors" respectively, jeers, hissing, and the sound of 


- /o - 

"w"''l'/f^V^^''''''^^°^^"^^^ "WeV/antAgnew", "Remember the Pueblo" , and 
Wouldn't A Dew Go Good Now? " pierced the air. 

^^ A considerable quantity of Communist literature was seized and destroyed. 
One peacenik" indicated that the fate of Benito Mussolini was in store for E B S 
members. His attempts to provoke an incident met with failure due to a show o'f ' 
conservative strength. The Society ended its demonstration by singing the Battle 
Hymn of the Republic at the conclusion of the film. 

One unidentified patriot reportedly made off with several lists of names which 
had been compiled at the door by the Communist sponsors of the movie in order to 
make future contacts for them . This whole incident can be added to an ever-growing 
list of right-wing victories over the left. The most notable item on this list was the 
apparent cutting of the sound wires at the November 15 Vietnam Moratorium demon- 
stration staged by the Communists. Repairs took half an hour, delaying proceedings. 
Lven then, the sound equipment failed to operate properly. 

K .K JV'^cre recently, it was noticed that the Maoist bo-k store in Toronto, operated 
by the pro-Peking Canadian Communist Movement, had the slogan "Reds Out" painted 
on its front window by an unknown freedom -fighter. More than likely, many long 
hours m the winter cold with a razor blade were required to remove the paint. A 
vicious act, especially at Christmas. 

But, somehow, one is unable to feel sorry for the poor little Reds, 
tactics are finally being used to put them on the defensive for a change.

"There's a new twist to the old complaint about our best brains being drained

In November 1969 issue of your Bulletin, I have found a very interesting descrip- 
tion of my country's neighbor - Byelorussia. However, on the fifth page of the "^ 
..n.f i"'-f"'^"^ u^ Byelorussia's cities and towns, was placed Vilna (Vilnius), the 
rl^l^ ^^^ of Lithuania, which was founded in 1323 by the Grand Duke of Lithuania, 
Ged minas. Vilnius (Vllna) is Lithuania's capital today too, though the country 
itself was occupied and incorporated into the Soviet Union. 

Please, be so kind to publish this letter in the next issue of your Bulletin. 
With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year, 

Sincerely yours.

An Editorial Clarification. 

.h^,i\K'''' !^^u! ^^'^ November last (1969)_, we published an article 
?HATMPn V ^ v^^u °^°'=^"Pi-d Byelorussia (Cf. INTRODUCING A COUNTRY 
CHAINED, by K.Akula) m which a number of cities were listed as 

Chief cities' of that submerged nation. To say that the list proved 
to be controversial- would be to understate the case, and we have 
been made to know it. The edito r s of this bulletin con fess to their 
negligence in not i nformincf the rea ders of thJQ hnii^^-ir, t-i-,.^ ^y,^ —

the_Edmunc^surl5_e So cJoty c annot and d ocs no t presume to take a po s i - 
tion... In the case in point, Mr Akula is responsible for his article 
^^°:.l°^^^^y such territorial or boundary claims it may contain. He is 
entitled to his opinion in these matters, just as others are entitled 
uo disagree with him. We hereby apologize to him and to any of our 
readers who may have misunderstood the position of the Society in thi^- 
regard: we cannot permit interminable debate in these limited pages 
on such questions, which will solve nothing and which could serious- 
ly weaken the kind of anti-communist unity which it is one of the 
purposes of EBS to foster and build. Some precision of this attitude 
is caliea for, we believe, to dissipate any possible misunderstan- 
ding, and to make our position crystal clear. 

The map of Eastern and Central Europe has been altered many 
times through the centuries, as great nation-states emerged from the 
Mediaeval Commonwealth and the Holy Roman Empire, expanded, sometimes 
into extensive imperial groupings, and in the course of these vo^^■t^ - 
cai-imperial permutations, some areas, (towns, provinces, regions, 
etc.) were subjected to deliberate policies of cultural integration, 
with the imposition of the language of the dominant power uoon people 
ot another language and culture. This has led, in time, to some con- 
fusion, and much controversy in some cases about what belongs to whom 
which IS nowhere more obvious than in that region which lies roughly 
in the area betv/oen the Russian, the Polish, and the Austro-Hungar- 
lan empires, v/here they establish^-d their authority, each in turn, 
and then departed. Those who make "settlements" of these territorial 
problems, as we saw at the end of World War I, seldom manage to get 
these problems sorted out, but seem to complicate them even more for 
future generations. For example, at the end of World War II, Stalin 
arhrtrariLy sliced off a piece of Eastern Germany, and awarded it to 
his Polish proconsuls, thereby supposedly compensating Poland for the 
Slice of Eastern Poland he had annexed into the USSR. In the confused 
map of zn ^nci'nt continent, it was not hard to come up with "histo- 
rical evidence" that the German territories thus given to his Polish 
province had bet=n Polish originally, and that was supposed to make it 
ail right. There is probably not a nation in Europe that does not 
iiarbour at least one territorial grievance: Hungary still hankers for 
territory taken from her by the Treaty of Trianon, and the Italians 
r, 1 ,^ ^'^^^ about losingBriga Tenda to the French at the end of 
.vorld War II. The list could be as endless and as pointless as the 
arguments they generate. Who should have Transylvania? Roumania or 
Hungary. And what about the citizens of the Zakarpatzky region 
(Western Ukraine) who were forcibly annexed to Soviet-occupied Ukraine 
Dy btalm at the end of the war, but who had been awarded to that con- 
glomerate fedv.r-il Republic, Czecho-Slovakia in 1918? Having been ' 
at various times in their history, under Polish and Hungarian rule, 
as well as Russian, they are beginning to wonder what their nationa- 

i ■ v,^^'^ ^^ ^^' '^"^ ^^^ today be found to be speaking a "dialect" 
Which seems to be ?. mixture of Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, and... 
Hungarian, since all of these languages have, -.t one time or another, 
enjoyed official status under the various regimes! Obviously, these 
are problems v/hich defy the best efforts of objective political demo- 
graphers, historians, and ethnologists, and thr. Edmund Burke Society 
cannot pretend to have instant solutions to those complex "Balkan

iiut tnore is more at stake than that. We s tand for enlightened ,

comrnurut^. In the Middle Ages, Europe constituted a Christian Com- 
monwoalth of tJ^tions, whoce citizens could travel anywhere between the 
Orkneys to the Mediterranean and Ei^ck Se-.s without ever really ente- 
ring foreign" territory. The coOT.on religious and intellectual cul- 
ture of Christendom v/as the common patrimony of all the Christian 
nations, and this fact was broad enough to uncomoass and entertain 
the free flourishing of local customs, autonomies, cultures, and lan- 
guages, as well as deep attachment to these and to one's native 
heath, one's kith and kin. Tho universities were cosmopolitan in the 
best sense, where scholars from East and West, North and South, Teuton' 
Norman, Slav, Celt, Saxon, or Latin, could mingle in fraternal devo- 
tion to the pursuit of truth, their various national, racial, or cul- 
tural particularities composing an intellectual mosaic reflecting the 
?i^'"'\^^iy''''^^^^ °^ ^ healthy Christian culture. Even toward the end of 
tnu Middle Ages, we still find an outstanding humanist scholar like 
Erasmus , who could be at home anywhere in Europe, knowing no other 

vernacular' language apart from his native Dutch, because h^- effecti- 
vely wrote, communicated, and expressed himself with considerable 
eloquence m... Latin. The last two terrible world wars are teaching us 
tnat Europe is m fact a community of nations, and if the Leninist 
Imperialist is ever to be defeated, these nations must learn to stand 
together, or face total national extinction as isolated units. The 
national resurrection of Byelorussia, th^ Baltic nations, Ukraine, etc. 
will -.nly be achieved by the fraternal cooperation of all those who, 
regardless of their nationality or religious committment, are deter- 
mined that the slave states of the ^ocialist Camp shall be liberate'^, 
and the atheist power smashed forever. In 1968, we saw the Czechs ,-nd 
biovaks brutally repressed in their patriotic reaching for some miti- 
gation of the rigours of Leninist serfdom. In 1956 we saw the heroic 
.-gyars cruelly slaughtered in their thousands as the red war machine 
crushed their few glorious days of national independence. In 19 ■=^3 we 
saw tre workers and peasants of Soviet-occupied Germany similarly 
massacred for revolting against the communist power. In each case, the 
bid for freedom was an isolated thrust, and it was therefore possible 
tor the Socialists to concentrate the full fury of their counter-revo- 
lutionary military might in each tragic case. The resistance move- 
ments of the occupied countries nust learn to work together, as must 
tn^ir partisans and friends in the free world; let us not be, as was 
said of the Bourbons, the sort of people of forget nothing and learn 
notning. We all hang together, or we all hang separately. Never in

In June of 1968, during our l:ist federal election cmpiign, the 
EdiPund Burkc society nublishod its first Fict Sheet, the now 
f-^n^ous EAST WIND OVE ^ OTTA'JA. This leaflet made xts "maiden voyage 
by' being first distributed to the crowd which gathered at the Sir 
Casirrir Gzowski Park on Toronto's western lakefront to greet Pi|££.^ 
El liott Trudea u (" I have no particular plans for youth ) , ^ho was 
then on his fa lKous helicopter campaign tour . Now this Park finds 
itself in the Riding of High Park, once a sate seat for liberal m v. 
rick Ralph Cowan (-What discussion is there? Absolutely none, ) , who 
was defeated that year, in which he ran as an ind..pendent , by the 
official Trudeauvnik candidate, Ilr . Walte r Deakon , who may safely be 

soectacular Liberal backbenchers 

in the 

described as one of the le 
present House of Commons. 

Last July, about a year later, Mr. Deakon confessed to the press 
what appeared to be some kind of disenchantment with th. triumphant 
Trudeau" camarilla, hinting that many Grit backbenchers , similarly 
disillusioned, "may not run for Parliament again ' ^P^^^^^^^ ' P^°" ^_

whose number were Toronto Ald.rman Tony Donahue , (who c mo across 
like the hero in a movie about the Irish ru-istance) , and....-ir. 


Since Mr. Deakon, in his inimitable fashion, represented the 
federal government, he was, obviously, the "star'' of the evening, and 
his sDcech was . . .unforgetable. The profundity of his observations, 
the depth of his political insight and perspicacity, and the moral 
sensitivity of his judgements would have done credit to a lesser light 
in Now York's famous Tamany Hall, famed of song and story. It was 
enough to make vou vomit. His speech ("I don't know what I'm supposed^ 
to say") eventually struck an appropriate note of sorrow re the trage 
dy of the Baltic states, overcome by the superior power of their Nazi 
and Soviet neighbours, though carefully avoiding any mention ot the 
virtual comolicity of the democracies in the crime, a complicity 
which is prolonged by the present policies of appeasement and conci- 
liation, and which is not cancelled out by the occasional, ritual 
-,hedding of crocodile tears, as we continue to conciliate and C0iia- 
borate with the Red imoerialists . Before leaving ( no doubt having a 
number of similar calls to make in the neighbourhood), Mr. Deakon was 
asked if he would raise the question of the Baltic states m the House 
to which he- replied, "I asked that question in the House... I 11 do it 
again for you.'' Very obliging , this Deakon chap; so much tor the Daltie

^/ S-- 


T'lka, for example, the question of our pull-out from NATO. 
Mr. Deakon managed to tell us, almost in the same breath, that we are 
"not really pulling out", that the government intended a "gradual 
pulling out", and that the whole thing was some kind of plot hatched 
by the'' three Frenchmen, Trudeau, Pelletier, and Marchand"'. Apart 
from t he prop rie ty (cr accuracy) of referring to the Trudoauvnik 
triumvirate as "Frcnch n on" (which we are sur^,' bhey would resent ) 
Mr. Deakon's unctions tone seemed to i'aply that this fact not only 
exo nner^-^te d h i^a from a ny re3ponsih-)ility or complicity in the "plot" 
but also thac. it someho w made it n i l right, and th:it wc v/ere not to

Do ■'.kon was innocent, since "they 
before we"ru even in the House of 

"worthwhile economically", with his never failing smile radiating 
seasonal, ecumenical bonhommie , Mr. Deakon concluded his comments on 
the subject with a pathetic attempt to strike an optimistic note: 
"You may be pleasantly surprised; we won't pull out as fast as you 
think" ( a slow suicide is pleasant?) .As a parting shot, in that lee- 
ring way that suggests that one is about to bo let in on an important 
dark, and secret confidence, Mr. Deakon averred that "There are a lot 
of us who think like Perry Ryan", but by this time his audience was 
more than half persuaded that Liberal backbenchers do not think at all 
and that if they do, they have no intention of emulating Ryan's very 
principled defection to the opposition benches... 


When he was asked about Trudeau' s policy of rt,cognizing the 
Stalinist-Maoist regime in Peiping, and the subsequent flooding of the 
country with Maoist spies, Mr. Deakon led off with that most original 
argviment, "You've got six to seven hundred million peoole that you've 
got to deal vrith", though he did not explain how this was to be made 
possible by recognizing MAO, and he studiously ignored commenting on 
our present recognition of the legal, constitutions! government of 
those "six to seven hundred million people". Chest er Ronniri^ ("We 
believe that it is important not merely t^:- establish diplomatic rela- 
tions with China but to use those relations as soon as possible to 
co-operate with China in efforts to promote peac.:; in Asia") would have 
been proud of him. As for '1-oist spies, well, that's all right too, 
you sec, because "you've got enough of them now, you.'. ve_ 9.9*: them in 
the government. . ." Displaying a tact worthy of his Party, Mr. Deakon 
went on" to explain that "I don't like the Coiiununists any more than 
you do but I'd rather talk to them than fight them... I'm all for 
dialogue!" (this, at a gathering of veterans many of whom had no doubt 
been obliged to fight the Leninists in the defence of their ancestral 
homelands!) Mr. Deakon wrapped up tnis problem with an interesting 
comment that "they (the government) eventually will recognize them, no 
matter what wo say" , (so much for the"policies of participation" ) ^ which 
remark seemed to make his foregoing statements defending -rrudeau ' s 
pro-Peiping policy just so much hot air expanded in the line of duty. 

Inevitably, someone raised the question of the CompaTiy__of__Young 
Canadians, then beting "inv..stigated" by a parliamentary committee. 
Mr. Deakon expressed his confidence in the CYC, which he characterized 
as "very dedicated. .." (don' t we know it!) and... "a v^ry worthwhile 
cause..." The trouble, it seems, stems from "an element in the province 
of Quebec, .trained in guerilla tactics" in the Soviet Union and occu- 
pied Cuba, who had "infiltrated" the CYC. >lr . Deakon conveniently 
ignored the fact that Trudeau Government had made it clear to the 
committee that it was precisely this Leninist infiltration which it 
was not to investigate, despite the widespread public clamour for it, 
Mr. Deakon wound this one up with the ri-"^'^'^""'^ observation that our 
young people were restless, and "we've got to give them sometning to 
do" . Ho H'um. 


Then there was the problem of the runerican deserters and draft 
dodgers. Under this rubric, Mr. D._akon was quite frank, though the 
question seemed to citch him somewhat unprepared: "Pardon my preamble; 


-/ fc- 

I've got to work into this." Hir, "preamble" having been duly pardoned, 
Mr. Deakon proceeded to "work into" his subject with an allusion to 
what one presumed was a T.V. panel dincussion on dissent to which he 
seems to have been invited ("I went down to the CBC and saw all those 
longhaired guys... I don't want any violent dialogue"), but soon get 
down to the question of the Government's policy: "At first, the Govern- 
ment wasn't allowing them in" (which isn't true) but, alas, "they had 
a real strong lobby... They went to everv ?'!.P. ... vie had a lot of 
pressure . . . " , and this is supposed to explain Trudoau ' s gracious 
indulgence of these traitors, some of whom have enjoyed lavish incomes 
dispensed from the tax-supported CYC ("a very worthwhile cause") to 
live it up, hippie-style, on Toronto's Ward's Island, and to publish 
an obscene periodical in Toronto, mailed out at thu Government's 
expense (it's we sucker citizens who have to pay Kierans ' high postal 
rates). It seems that our loyal, patriotic, and conscientious Tru- 
deauvnik rulers in Ottawa have a slight problem in dealing with the 
American deserters: "If they (the deserters and draft dodgers) were 
engaging in unlawful assembly, we could do something about it" (like 
sending Trudeau to administer a few judicious, "legal", judo chops?). 
This problem, of course, never seems to inhibit forceful action on the 
part of the government when it is a question of harassing visiting 
Biafran students or escaping Polish seamen, as we have remarked else- 
where.. . Mr. Deakon concluded under this heading with the revelation 
that deserters are "getting grants to attend the University", which 
is interesting to know. . . 


Thus were your EBS leaders treated to a thumbnail sketch of a 
Trudeauvnik backbencher in ruction, grinning constantly like an 
amiable Cheshire cat, doing -^ little spade work among the folks back 
in the boondocks, allaying their fears (he thinks), and trying to 
impress them with what a fine follow he is to be sitting in the House 
of Commons. The corny, unabashed, and frankly disgusting patronization 
of members of Canada's racial minority communities by a useless poli- 
tician was never better demonstrated than in this unprincipled ward- 
heeler's unsubtle attitude of wrapping himself in the folds of some 
kind of chummy identification with the ethnic minorities ("us") 
standing against the Anglo-French majority ("them"), as though he was 
their special, certified champion in Ottawa. One had the uncanny 
feeling that if parking offences were i federal offence, he would be 
the man to see to get a ticket fixed. We need Members in Parliament 
who are not mere lobbyists for ethnic minorities, special interest 
groups, regional or otherwise, but defenders of democracy, the natio- 
nal interest, the national purse, and responsible government, against 
the assaults of Presidential dictatorship, defeatism, and atheism; 
to defend us, in short, against Trudeaucracy . That is what we need. 
We do not need Mr. Deakon. 


The use of force for legitimate self-defense is conferred by 
the natural law. This moral justification to repel an unjust agg res 
sor by moans reasonably adapte d and_ proportiona te to the nature " 
the attack, is the right not only of individuals ,_but of the sta 
as well . In the case of the state, it goes further still;' it beco...^^ 
an obligation, in view of the duty incumbent on government to safe- 
guard the lives, the liberty, and the temporal welfare of citizens 
viewed individually and collectively .In total war the attack is no 
longer limited to acknowledged military targets; it is leveled 
against whole peoples as peoples."

U.S. draft-dodgers and r.ulitary deserters literally wined and 
dined liero over Christmas, thanks to the efforts of sorie sympathisers 
whose current past-tine appears to be cuddling those who run when 
the chips are down. 

A group calling itself the Ai:io rican Dosorters thought 
it raight be a wholcsono and hu:.ianil'arian gesture to do "a little sone- 
thing" for those socond-rate citizens of the U.S.A. who decided to 
flco the coop rather than do a little something for their country, 
like doing their patriotic duty as expected of every able-bodied 

This comiviittoe, unregistered in City Hall logs, has been set up 
to look after tho so-called i:n::icdiatc needs of the all-run-no-hit 
boys who are currently holed up in such major Canadian centres as 
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The committee says it provides shel- 
ter and food for the deserters and draft-dodgers, but decided that, 
Christmas being Christmas, something extra should be done. 

They arranged for an eating hall at the University Settlement 
?-t 3553 St.Urbain Str. here (the settlement receives financial aid 
from the Red Feather United Services, incidentally) and fed the poor 
wretches a turkey dinner with the usual tri.:imings. 

The commiittce said the Christmas dinner would go far "to stron- 
ghten tho bonds between tae ^^lerican draft resistors " as it called 
them, "v;ith Canadians'". VJhat Canadians the committee had in mind 
wasn't made clear. 

The 's.Club 

To mako for an authentic atmosphere, tho coi:ii.iittee invited what 
it said v/as a Vietnamese student who promised the smiling diners that 
"tho defeat of A^vierican imperialism will result in victory for us all". 

As usual, the Mcv.^JDe mocrat ic Party made sure it got in a lick or 

tvro against the U.S. aiicT'TFioTc" fighting com amis t advajices, by being 

represented at the dinner and praisixig tho "courage" of the deserters 

and draft-dodgers. 

Just how courageous are these runav/ay characters is reflected 
in their desire iiot to return to the U.S. but to fight "U.S. milita- 
rism" from abroad. Of course, some of the deserters who did some 
whining after the dining failed ( very conspicuously) to mention that.

To add. to the "comfort" of tr.^sc American "visitors", the com- 
mittee also aivpealed to big-heartee iiontrealcrs to "take a deserter 
homio for Christmas Day", and urged volunteers to send in their ncmies 
and addresses. Unfortunately, the naa-ies of these generous citizens 
were not published, but it's a safe bet that many of those attending 
that Christmas di.aner or those usually seen demonstrating outside 
tho U.S. Consulate licrc were caaong them. 

Only one English-language nev/s_:aper - tho Sunday Express - 
bothered to report the dinner, but it was clear from the report 
(headed, "The Draft-dodgers vihine and dine") that it was hoping more 
to expose the typo of characters wo have here rather than Just pass 
along inform.ation about the diiiner. 

The dinxier closed v;ith a resolve to continue to undermine the 
U.S. Government, and even took a shot at the Caaiadian Government's 
alleged iiivolve;.ient in the Vietnam war. 

The desertcrS; incidentally, who have no Jobs, said they paid 
for "cho Christmas dinner by passing the hat among their more "fortunate" 
Canadian colleagues.

'The true danger is, when liberty is 
nibbled nway, f'-^r expedients- and by parts'.' 

Edmund Burke 

Christinas past was celebrated by Canadians in a relatively free 
ceuntry. Freedom -f soeech and freed.">m of the press were not mere 
ideals that existed in other lands; they were accurate accounts of the 

as the 70 's begin 

hard-won freedoms posSv.:;S3ed by Canadians. But, 

Canadians are gi-dng to ha^'o to fight vx^ hard to retain such'^basic 

and necessary freedoms a^ freedom of expression and freedom of the 


At present, these free'^'oms are under severe attack from a measure 
called the "hate bill ., more properly known as Commons Bill C-3. This 
measure has already been approved by the Senate and has received first 
and second readings in the House ^^f Commons, It must still go to 
coor.iittee before being given third and final appr-^val. 

The proposed '^hate bill" would jail f-r up tc txvo years "every- 
one who, by communicating statements^ willfully promote hatred or 
contempt against any identifiable group." (Section 2) . "Identifiable 
grc-up moans any section of the public distinguished by colour, race, 
religi-n, or ethnic origin.'' T^Th^.t, '~ne wonders, is"h--,te". Any criti- 
cism or derogatory comment tonds to lessen respect for the group 
attacked. If a remark lessons respect for a group, d-^es it not,"therc- 
'^^.^^'. '^'^^^ it int- contempt - a violation of the proposed "hate 
bill"? Thus, a French-Canadian complaining against Anglo-Saxon domi- 
nation -f Quebec co^ld bo thrown into j-ii f-r tv;o years f-r promoting 
hatred. Similarly, --n English-C-'nadian could be jailed for two years 
for saying that the French were l-'.zy, and already had boon coddled 
too much by the Federal government . 'while both these opini-ns may be 
extreme, what right d'^os the government havo t" censor then? Such a 
law smacks of the sort of '^security laws" of some fifth rate banana 
republics. It is unworthy and unnecessary in Canada. 

The above section would also be a constant axe over the head of 
Canada's many racial and religious groups, 'lany of the immigrant 
groups from Europe retain a certain degree of hostility toward one 
another. Our laws adequately protect a citizen against murder, assiiult 
or robbery; but, they should not shield certain groups fro,m. criticism. 
Our iminigrants v/ere attracted to Canada precisely because wc offered 
them freedom - not a police state that censors and jails exponents of 
unpopular opinions. Both ethnic disagreements and controversies among 
our many religious groups sh-uld be tolerated. .A man sh-^uld not have 
to look furtively over his shoulder before expressing his opinion 
on a matter of race or religi-^n, as is the case In the captive nations 
behind the Iron Curtain. Significantly, the Cnadian Tribune , mouth- 
piece of the Canadian Comm.unist Party, rejoiced over the 'hate bill" 
in a December 17th editorial. Bill C-3, wc are told, would help 
"curb the filth spewed up by capitalism. . .and anti-Communism (is) ... 
cart of it." 

H'^WGver, the "hate bill" does not stop here in its steamroller 
dospoli.-^ti'-n of the rights of a free people. Part 1 of section 267b 
reads- "Everyone who, by communicating statements in any public place, 
incited hatred or contempt against any identifiable group where such 
incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace, is guilty of 
a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for tw-^ years," 
Again, we ask- where does critism. end and "hate" begin? This section 
would allow an unruly crowd t-^ silence any speaker, who dared to cri- 
ticize another race or religion. 'Mth arim. irony, this section 
absolves a riotous mob, whilr nuni:. '/ling the speaker they objected tc. 
How is a judge to d..cide what 1- 
peace? We could easily Sv:,c '. s'tu- 
strong opini'-'n -"^n rac^ or r^ li-ji". 
unwittingly break this draconic 1: 

"lik'-ly'' t'^ load to a breach of the 
••ere a speaker expressing a

hostile audience could

.. 4 _ 

Scctirn 267c Tnrks a further breakthrr^ugh in restrictive law. Our 
British legal systcn holds that a man is inn'^cent until proven guilty. 
Now, however, -'a judge wh'^ is s-?tisfied by information upon oath that 
there are reasonable grounds for believing that any publication, 
copies of which arc kept for sale or distribution in premises within 
the jurisdiction of the c^urt, is hate propaganda, shall issue a 
warrant under his hand authorizing seizure of the copies." Within 
seven days the judge must summon the owner to show cause why the lite 
rature should not be forfeited. This arbitrary law doesn't deign to 
tell us what would be cnsidered "hate". Times t any strong opinion 
could be so considered. Having gagged Parliament with Bill 75-c, the 
Trudeaucrats seem intent on leading Canada down the r-^ad to totalita- 
rianism by gagging political expression, as v/cll.This section of the 
"hate bill" would subject many sincere and honest citizens to harass- 
ment by their political -pp'^nonts. In addition, this section is com- 
pletely contrary to our legal traditions, which presume a man to be 
innocent until proven guilty and which traditionally defend, not 
confiscate private property! '^his section, particularly, is unwor- 
kably vaquo and concentrates an uncommon amount of discretion in the 
presiding judge, to whom few legal guidelines or definitions are 
given,, 'The greater the powers, the more dangerous the abuse'", Edmund 
Burke wrote in 1771. We aaree. 

A.nother section of the "hate bill" mak>.'S anyone who "advocates 
or promotes genocide" liable to five years imprisonment .Certainly , no 
responsible Canadian is for genocide. However, our laws adequately 
prevent a man from carrying out, in fact, what he might advocate in 
the heat of argument. Not only is this section unnecessary, it is 
highly hycocritical. The nresent Trudeau government is guilty of 
indifference and silence to real (not just advocated genocide) . Hun- 
dreds of thousands of Biafrans have been systematically starved to 
death by their Nigerian onoressors. This is real genocide. When first 
asked to aid Biafra, our swinging P.M. replied: "Wo didn't aid the 
Nazis at Stalingrad. " Our present government has also sinned by its 
silence in the face of real physical oppression and cultural genocide 
in the lands under communist tyranny, whore systematic Russif ication 
(especially in the Baltic countries*, Byelorussia and Ukraine) is 
destroying the cultures of the captive people. T^nd yet, the Trudeau 
government, with its shameful record of callous silence in the face 
of real genocide, still proposes to jail a Canadian citizen for up 
t" five years for merely advocating genocide. 

'!*■* .i 

Canadians mav rightly ask; 'why is the government trying to pass 
a "hate bill"?' Edmund Burke wrotei'The people never giv.i up their 
liberties but under some delusion." \ccordingly, as Burke also noted, 
since"tyrants seldom want pretexts", the Trudeau government would 
have us believe that the "hate bill" will curb a neo-Nazi menace. 
What menace? The Canadian Nazis, all six ^f them, have scarcely made 
deep inroads into Can -'.da. Underfinanced and discredited, their one 
candidate in the l^st federal election polled less than three hundred 
votes. Fvon if a government should outlaw danger-^us ideas, should not 
communist and Maoist revrluti^n^'.ry ideas be outlawed as well? After 
all, their influence lay behind the orgy of destruction of taxpayers' 
property last February at Sir Ge'~^rgc '•■'illi?ms University. 

Two years '.go Britain passed a measure similar to the proposed 
"hate bill". Last fall, noted trade union loader, Frank Cousins, 
chairman of the Community 'delations Commission asked "the Home Secre- 
tary t^ repeal legislation which makes it an offence to stir up 
racial hatred by speech or v;riting. Section 6 of the 'Race Ralations 
Act 1965 probably does more harm than good in fostering racial harmo- 
ny . The section lays down that it is an offence to stir up hatred 
against people distinguished by col^-ur, race, or ethnic origins 
(sounds familiar I ).. . Mr Mark Bonham Carter, chairman of the Race 
Relati'^ns Board, ... supported Mr. Cousin's ->ttitU'le . . . He added;

The last month has been one of v/idespread activity on several 
fronts for The Ed-nund Burke Society. 

- January 27 - Our film attacking eertain types of permissive 
SdX Educati^-n sh^-^wn to a small West Toronto gathering. 

- January 31 and February 1 - E.B.S. freedom of speech ad, 
denouncing propr s-^d "hate Mil", appe-rs in Toronto Glebe and Mail (see 
story page 2) . 

- January 21 - Nine ",B."^, members take afternoon off to attend 
C.T.V. taning session of French Revolutionary leader, Daniel Cohn - 
Bendit . The F.B.S. t?:am kept ud a barrage of questions and remarks 
that rattled the hair-trigger temp.:;r of Danny the Red, Upon seeing the 
placards that we silently displayed to the T.V. cajneras ("Red agitator 
go home", ^'France Didn't Want You, We Don't Want Y-^u Either"' 
"Edmund Burke Society says Rod Out:"), Cohn-Bendit forgot what ho was 
saying, spun amund at us, and screamed "fascists". One of our members 
t^ld him in no uncertain torms that he had fought two types '^f fascists 
in Europe (Italians and Germans) and that now an even worse brand of 
totalitarianism. Red fascism, ruled his homeland; and, furthermore, 
Danny, was in his (and our) opinion, kith and kin to the Red Jacobins, 
The E.B.S. group rattled Cohn-Bendit and picked holes in his porous 
and rambling oresontation (see K.Akula's article) . 




- February 3 - Under the sardonic pseydonym, ''Friends of China", 
the local Maoists, the Internationalists from 721 Gerrard Street, held 
a public spe::ch and film night. To judge the sort of success this 
group is having, and to see the sort of propaganda used, E.B.S. sent 
sixteen members. Our quiet, orderly group was denied admission at the 
door. The Maoists lived up to their "mad dog" image as cowardly fana- 
tics by setting upon one of our middle-aged members, throwing him to 
the ground, and attempting to kick him. His mistreatment was swiftly 
avenged. We are in the process of filing a complaint with Ron Basford's 
Consumer -f fairs Department under a section of an act which outlaws 
false advertizing. 

- Chairman F. Paul Fromn was heard on C.B.C. radio from Saska- 
toon West, debating with ". ,. P. 'ndrew Brev;in ovar the proposed "hate 
bill" and our ad denouncing it. Th'' N.D.P.'er, usually quite concerned 
about the rights of California grape-pickers, Vietcong insurgents, 
and American draft-dodgers and deserters, seemed unconcerned about 
Canadians' rights to free speech indeed, he acciased us of being 

>. -•' y 

- fi - 

•^hysterical" over freedom of speech. No one will ever accuse Brewin 
of being "hysterical' about defending Western civilization. 

. - February 4 - Jeff Goodall, Treasurer, Joseoh Gonovese, and 
Chairman, F. Paul Fromm, grantor", interview to the Mirror chain's 
corresDonrlent, "Irs. Geiger-MiUcr . Having noticed our -hate bill' ad 
Mrs. Miller contacted us; and her in-deoth fc3ature on our hate bill 
stand and our activities in general should appear shortly. 

- February 8 - The E.B.S. received repeated ovations from an 
enthusiastic cr-wd of Ukrainian Canadians at a meeting of the Canadian 
Committee for the Liberation of the Ukraine, which drew 300 neople. 
Chairman F.Paul Fromm explained the aims of our society and delivered 
a no-nonsense call for unity and co-opcraticn among anti-communists. 
The chairman of the C.C.L.U, pledged a policy of co-operation for the 
future; and the nature of many searching and friendly questions 
directed at our chairman shows that we can expect a far better rapport 
with the Ukrainian community in the days to come. We then showed two 
filnis. Revolution Underway and The Groat Pretence to the audience. 

- January 29 - February 12 - Council member, Gil Urbonas, deserves 
special commond'ition for organizing E.B.S. members to hand out a 
pamphlet outside the Parkdalc Theatre, where I Shall Never Foraet , a 
movie about the anti-Nazi and anti-communist partisans in the Ukraine 
w^s showing. This movie was made here in Canada by Canuks Productions 
and will be reviewed in next month's STRAIGHT TALK! We handed out 
pamphlets after most showings. Our pamphiet, in English and Ukrainian 
invited the people to our February 16 general meeting and urged 
greater unity in the fight for freedom. 

- February 10 - Six E.B.S. members attended Finance Minister's 
Benson's speech and panel discussion at the Star Forum. At least one 
E.B.S. member's question was reported in the next day's STAR. 
Benson's arrogant smoothness indicated that he sees himself as the 
people's planner, not their servant. 

The E.B.S. has established a committee to look into the White 
Paper on Taxation and to formulate a detailed policy on it, as well 
as a programme to combat it. Head of this committee is Jaanus Proos. 
We urge you to send your ideas '^r opinions to Mr. Proos , c/o P.O. 
Box 544 , Sc-irb'^rough, Ontario. He is especiall y intere sted in how~th£ 
White Paper will affect certiin occupation s and regions (og. fishing, 
farming, mining etc.). "" ' 

" February 15 - A half dozen E.B.S. members attended a large mee- 
ting of Lithuanians, commemorating their country's independence day. 
We handed out a pamphlet in both Lithuanian md English (our publi- 
cations are becoming multilingual!) inviting the pconle to our Febru- 
ary meeting and urging greater co-operation in the future. A paid ad 
in the loc?.l Lithuanian paper carried the same message. 


-7 T 

-The February l6th general meeting of the Edmund Burke Society 
saw a_lively and informative discussion about the communist menace 
in Asia, featuring as guest speaker, Mr. Sh'-m Shan , press rerr^^sent - 
ayjA:3_for_Cariada .of ...the. Nationalist Chin ese t7:overnment (Taiwan). 
:^specially rev:-aling were various reflections on the Trudcauvnik 
coddling of the Maoist tyranny and subseouent betrayal of our 
Nationalist Chinese allies, as well as the mainland Chinese strug- 
gling to throw off the yoke of Red oppression, a full-scale red 
propaganda barrage as well as a general widespread increase in 
Tiaoist infiltration was predicted when the Red Chinese open th-ir 
embassy in Ottawa. 

The meeting- was well attended with members and friends present 
numbering in excess of one hundred. One uninvited interlocuter who 
proceeded to make himself somev/hat unpopular with his naive fifth- 
rate liberal rhetoric ("I'hy don't you write your M.P.") claimed to 

it's interest- 

be an aF-?nt of the Trudeou nachin..;. If such" is true 
ing to note that the Trud.;;aucrats have finally taken notice. How- 
ever it would be much easier for them to subscribe to Straight Talk 
or pick up the copy mailed to the Conuncns Library on Parliament Hill.

The followjng is a letter from one of our readers and the reply 
authorized by the Council of the Edmund Burke Society. 

F.P.F. Editor 

Dear Sir; 

E.B.S. denonstrations used to have a reputation for orderliness 
and law-abiding scrupulousness. .^Jow I read that a number of E.B,S. 
members "raided '■ a Communist film sh.-.wing and that much Communist 
literature "was s.iized and destroyed", (".'.ctivity Report',' "Straight 
Talk! , Jan. '70, pp. 9, 10) 

Such activity is worthy of the Communists themselves. If such 
tactics are adopted by the E.B.S. members, the public will soon 
revert to the prevailing sentiment among the mass media that conser- 
vatism is the preserve of the book-burning crack-pots and irrespon- 
sible juveniles, 

C-^nsequently I recommend that the Council of the E.B.S. c ndemn 
and repudiate any use of violence and vandalism by its members. 

/■vnd since words affect people, I recommend also that vou temper 
the language in straight Talk! Straight pres<_ntation of the facts," 
devoid of personal abuse, is all that is going to persuade people ^f ' 
the Communist and socialist menace in Canada. Likening a foolish woman 
to "some starved hound that bays as it smells blood" is mindless 
hyperbole and wild simile unworthy even of grade 8 student. Worse, 
such interjections and comments not only bring the writer's objectivity 
into question, but inflame your less stable members into just the sort' 
of vandalism that was applauded in "Activity Report". 

The E.B.S. -"opears to be on the verge of winning a fairly broad 
base of support from the r:ublic. To flirt with violence and to fulmi- 
nate with venomous personal abuse will cost the E.B.S. this very 
support that could mean new life for conservatism in Canada. I there- 
fr^re nsk you to see th-it your Council condemn ind repudiate any use 
of violence and vandalism by its m.embers and that Straight Talk! 
stirt -calking straight. 

Thanking you for your attention, I rem.ain 

Yours sincerely, 

G.r, .Scott 

Strasbourg-Neudorf , France 


We are grateful for the solicitude shown by Pastor Scott in the 
matter of tactics used by members of the Edmund Burke Society in 
situations of direct confrontation v/ith the Communist fifth columnists 
operating in our communities. His criticism.s ar.; well-takon, and 
provide us with another opportunity to review our activities in this 
area, with :^ view to making certain that we ire keeping our skirts 
(morally) clean. 

The problem he raises, however, h'ls dimensir-ns of an ethical 
and strategic character which must be clearly understood. The kind of 
'activity reports" quoted by Pastor Scott obviously employed language 
of somewhat juvenile exaggeration, and f-r this your editors can only 
mutter a sheepish " me a culpa " and promise to mend their ways. 

However, whil : we 
and vandalism") can we 
where and under all ci 
pay homage to "non-vic 
fied virtue, and to co 
unqualified evil. This 
example, are quite nre 
T.V. while, in effect, 
ment * s completion of i 
this can scarcely elic 

cann'-t condone st-nseless hooliganism ("violence 
, in good C'ttscionce, eschew all force, every- 
rcumstances? It is most fashionable today to 
Icnce", as though it was a universally unquali- 
ndemn violence as tJiough it was a universally 

is unrealistic. Far too many people, for 
pared to"peacefully" guzzle th^ir beer and watch 

serenely acquiescing in the Nigerian Govern- 
ts "Final Solution" to the Biafran problem, and 
it our admiration. 


On the lnc.ll level, we arc confronting i determined, criminal, 
-■.nd considerably violent .^my r;f marxict fifth column activities 
which our federal Government not only oncour?.ges politically, but even 
to some extent, finances from the public purse. P'jlice departments are 
hamstrung by official indulgence, lenient cc^urts, and inadequate legal 
safeguard:^ against seditirn, sabotage, and Red terror. In September 
1968, the homes of Ilawker-Siddeley executives were bombed, but the 
culprits were never apprehended. In a recent confrontation in Toronto, 
an anti-Communist citizen, raiddle-aged , was knocked down when he tried 
to enter a hall f'^r -^ ''a ist m-^oting, and if young E.B.S. stalwarts 
had not come to his rescue, he would have had the boots put to him by 
four or five of Mao's children ("Chairman MAO says the only thing to 
do when you meet a reactionary is to kill him"). Even that dazzling ,- 
fun-lovina Rover Boy.- Pierre Elliott Trudeau ("I didn't know it was 
such fun"), the President of our Peopli-s' Democratic Republic of Cana- 
da, at the S.-aforth Armouries in Vancouver last summer, slugged a 
few of these godless goons when they razzed him beyond endurance, ind 
was never charged by the police, despite complaints laid with them. 

Nhile we hold no brief for the P.M.'s extra-legal priviledg-_s ' 
the fact remains that you cannot fight Leninism iv^ith creampuff-s. Y-^u 
cannot "dialogue" with Maoist monomaniacs. As Nicholas Berdayev , the 
distinguished Russian philosopher warned us some years ago: "There is 
no possibility of discussion with "larxist-Leninists, the arguer is 
relegated to the different type of consciousness of another 'class' 
by the mere fact of daring to raise objections. Proletarian consciou s- 
ness supposes the nrovi'us initi ation into ?. myst.-ry that is unseen 

nnd unintelligible f r -.m the -utside; 'class-truth' is 


truth which is made cle^r only to thr qe who have- made their wny into 

the circle 

no meaning; 

■^f initiates c There, ". universalist line of argument has 
facts themselves have no meaning, for they depend on 

consciousness, which, with its philosophy and science, its morality 
and politics, calls for a definitive break with the past and its 
universalism and turns to the creation of a new world and a new man' 
(Cf. THE END OF OUR TI'-IE). It is precisely this fundamentalism with 
which we h?-ve to deal, and we can never admit that its agents and 
>ottors havi 

>ny moral right whatsoever to carry on tJicir psychopo- 
litical warfare against our democratic society with absolute impunity 

There is -Iso the question of legitimate self-defence; we cannot 
expect our members, when they are physically ?.tt^cked, insulted, 
threatened with deith, or inundated with a torrent of the grossest 
obscenity, to endure with absolute patience and "non-violence". These 
things are happening. They are the terms under which the enemy has 
chosen to wige his struggle against Western civilization. If some of 
-^ur members respond a bit roughly, this is n-t a matter of an option 
taken on our part, but of a ritional r^-cognition of reality. We hone 
and pray, of course, that our means will always be in proportion to 
our ends, morally speaking; but this can never mean that we shall bo 
found wanting wh^^n i given situation demands some manly, surgicil, 
prudential (and surely human) violence in defence of our country, 
our families, or of the victims of Red terror.

By K. .-ikul,=^. 

I remember my boyhood fishing trips „ Prirh^ips "fishing" is not 
the proper word for it. Through a low-lying meadow ";t the edge ^f our 
village in Byelorussia there ran a muddy ditch. In the summertime, 
when the v/ater was sh-'llov/, kids rolled up thcjir pants and proceeded 
to dig out eels. Don't ask me to properly identify them; to me they 
looked black, thin and very slippery. No matter how you tried to get 
hold of one, it would slip through your muddy fingers. It twisted and 
coiled, and you couldn't secure a hold on it unless you managed to 
throw it out on the '-^ry grass a distance away, and even thi:;n the 
quarry tried its best t'"' slip away. 

These "fishing" expeditions came to my mind recently as, on 
January the 21-st, together with other E,3-S. members, I sweated under 
the powerful T.V. -studio lamps at CFTO-T.V. during a taping session. 
We were studi'^usly observing the pathetic and, thus far, unrev;arding 
efforts of Patrick Watson and Gloria Steinem trying to dig this parti- 
cular 'eel' cut r.f the Marxist mud. Mr. Watson, s'-mewhat frustrated, 
was doing his best - as the present Pepsi generaticn would s-^y - 
to keep his cr^ol. Gl^-ria (beautiful and det iched) seemed to be mora 
reserved . 

' ee 

Here was this marxisi 
pugnaci'~us eyes, chubby cheeks 
'revolutionary pr'^phot' was at 
his hands and darting in all d 
dovvn. And ;vhat a borol He was

lism in oppressed Quebec ' , rat

doesn't want him, the 'U.S. im. 
belongs to the "masses". Yet h

All of it and more. 

1' facing them b-^th; unkempt rod hair, 
, waving hands and dirty boots. The 
once coiling and twisting, flying with 
irecti^nis. You could hardly pin him 
quoting the two; infamous dogmatists, 
ad h'-rso knov/n vs 'Anglo-Saxon capita- 
tling off quotations and figures from 
nd telling ':ne and all that Moscow 
perialists' don't want him, and so he 
iloiesn ' t lead the masses, because no

eported to his native Germany. His name is_Dani_el

'^.e this 'hero' with a 'representative' audience, 
ervice dispensers at CFTO-T.V. dispatched two 
iry generaticn from the University of Toront'o , 
free university' - R^chda le C r 1 lege ,- and from 
^nq those assembled there' were prc.:;bably a number

some of them even taking notes. Come to think 
eprcsentative audience' yu watch -n your silver 
inns of sponsors and ^11. God help us I 

Thing.<5 got off to the right start when the applause of the 
above-mentioned auiionce was properly interrupted by a tremendous 
boo from the Edm un-/l Durkc Society grqu_p.Mr. PJatson smiling both 
beningly and apologetically at the'guest, remarked that it v>/as 'f-^r 
the b-ilance'. The interviewer, however, little knew what was in store. 
E.B.. S. members -liligently kept the red 'eel' off-b«lanco most of the 
time. Neither Marx nor ^ao helped )iim. He flew in all directions, 
he exploded and he twisted and coiled. Yet this upstart pretended 
to have all the answers to nil questions,. Organized confusion. If that 
programme FACE TO F'XGE TO FACE has already hit your local channel, 
you may n-^t have misse'! much. If it did n^-t, watch it by all means. 
You may encfunter s-~me of your E.B.S. leaders in action, (effective 
dislocation an! bombardment)' and watch this wo^uld-be-revolutionary . 
Don't smirk. This is one of the breed that surfaced amidst the Pari- 
sian froth during th-se demonstrations, an', wh^ - if g-'.^d men do 
nothing to stop his kind - w^-'Uld have the p-^wer rf life and death 
over you tom'-'rr'^w.

Congratulations tc car nombu-rs for a most effective job. Their 

questions and comments took about one third of over two hours taping 

time. One wonders how much of it will remain in the programme after 
editors' have .lone their jr.b. 

Although in my humble opinion this 'eel' succeeded only in 
making a fool of himself, here are, for your consi'leration , some 
vignettes from his boring outpourings: 

PRAVDA branded hira as a "U.S. imperialist provocateur and 
lackey" . 

Sccialism is har:l to attain, yet Mao's China is making honest 
efforts in that direction. 

They (the red 'eel' and his like) are against violence, but 
they had tho- riiht to dislocate life in Paris and wreck the Sorbonne. 

The taxpayer? He's an ass. 

The issue in Quebec is one of Anglo-Saxon oppression. French 
Quebeckers make 20% less than the Anglo-Saxon capitalists. 

The red 'eel' admitted that he's no expert on Quebec after 
three days' visit to Montreal, but generously enlightened us from 
the numerous prepared papers from you can guess what sources. 

He is "sexually repressed" because of outdated society regula- 
tions. He would do away with the institution of marriage. 

And so on he babbled. The rci" 'eel', as I remarked earlier, was 
off-balance (thanks to the E.B.S.) most of the time, and might not 
agree with his ov/n babbling had he hL;ard it being played back on tape. 

The question naturally arises: whit was CFTO-T.V. trying to 
accomplish? V7asn't this f-'.rce a 'deliberate gimmick to confuse the 
well-wishing and answer-seeking young generation? If the T.V. company 
is sincere with its good intenti'-ns, then why for balance not to 
bring in a couple '^f known anti-communist leavders and let them have 
their say? ^

Free Speech 





Bill C-3, now before the Commons Justice Committee 
severely restricts freedom of speecii and dissent. Its 
vague wording could turn it into a bludgeon for politi- 
cal persecution, lilce the Padlock Uws of Duplessis. 
The government that did nothing about real genocide 
in Biafra proposes to: 

—Jail a Canadian for up to two years for communicat- 
ing hatred or contempt against any race, religion, or 
nationality. Nowhere is hatred' or contempt' de- 
fined. Any strong criticism leads hearers to a lower 
opinion (or 'contempt') for the attacked. 
—Jail a Canadian for up to two years for communicat- 
ing 'hatred' or 'contempt', where such is "likely" to 
lead to a breach of the peace. This novel legal inno- 
vation acquits a riotous moh and could serve to si- 
lence many controversial speakers, who are 
"likely" to annoy their hearers. 
—allow a Judge to order seizure of alleged "hate pro- 
paganda". To reclaim his possessions, the owner 
must show that the literature is not "hate". With ttiis 
measure, "innocent until proven guilty" goes out the 
window. Even if the defendant proves that the litera- 
ture is not "hate" (whatever that is), the expenses 
and time involved constitute punishing political har- 
There is no need for the drastic measures of this bill. 
Canadian law already adequately protects citizens 
from physical attack; but, each man is entitled to 
non-violent expression of opinion. Canadian men sacri- 
ficed and died in two terrible wars to preserve this 
basic right. Let's not lose in peacetime what we won 
in war! 

Write your M.P immediately and urge him to vote 
"no" on the "hate bill"!

ovDrturos from the .^.B.S. - an activist group, prirnariiy of working- 
class orientation with no motives of dir:,ct monetary gain. Appar-

To be sur-:;, B,nson's "Ifnito" Paper is a "political document." 
It will lead to profound changes in th: nation's political and social 
fabric. Primarily, there will be a major expansion of the big- 
brother-government bureaucratic sector into the life of the indivi- 
dual from Valuation Day to I9S4. The incentives for entrepreneur- 
ship and risk-taking that have built up our high standard of living, 
will be fatally eroded. Deterrents will increase against foreign 
capital investment creating exmployraent in Canada. On the other hand, 
there will be even greater incentives afforded to the night of dom- 
estic Canadian capital to more favourable investment climates a- 
broad. The confiscatory effect of estate taxes will force the sale 
of an incre-^sinr: number of family farms and businesses. The virtual . 
imipossibility of keeping a business within the family after the 
death of the owner will further disceuraga th-i development of small 
businesses. The undeniable incentives for emigration will acceler- 
ate the brain drain of Canadian talent to t!ie U.S. where by 1973, 
income taxes v/ill be one-half the Canadian rate.

AS far as the spurious ani unfounded attack made ~>n us is 
concerned,, we have this to say: we challenge you Liberals to meet 


on radio or television, to discuss the subject of ethnic min- 

ority groups, and to discuss and debate any aspect of the Edmund 

Burke Society and Federal politics that you wish - if you feel that 

your record and philosophies can face up to the strain of no-holds- 
barred criticism and debate. 

Should the Liberals fail to take 
that they refrain from criticizing (or ; 

up the glove, we suggest 
it bewailing?) our accept- 


anco by East European immigrants (let alone the inroads that 

making into Canadian politics as such), and instead, turn their 

thoughts to the subject of where they went wrong. Ther e is plenty 
of material for th--m ^o work on'.

exiles in TaLin was t^t^^^^^^^^^ f ..^^^^^ -^ loyalty amongst the Chinese 

tmuugn oiienng them a national purpose." The "national 

purpose" was composed of nationalism, democracy, and "economic well-being." 

Chosing his words carefully, Shen Shan said that "economic well-being" 
meant neither welfarism nor socialism. By way of illustration, he mentioned that 
Taiwan encouraged foreign investment (with tax holiday's etc.) and had thereby 
industrialized. Ten years ago, the government had achieved a more equitable 
distribution of land - not by murdering 20 million people as Mao-Tse-Tung had, 
nor by confiscating lands as Castro-style "agrarian reformers" do - but by persuading 
large landowners to sell what land they didn't need to the government. The govern- 
ment, then, resold the land to needy peasants, with easy terms to stretch over a 
long period of time, 

Canada is being humiliated at the conference table, Shen Shan said. Red 
China will only condescend to allow Canada to recognize her, if. Canada meets 
three debasing conditions, 1) V/e must recognize Mao as the only ruler of China 
and must expel the Nationalist representatives. (This has already been agreed to 
by our grey-faced diplomats in Stockholm) . 2) We must actively sponsor Red 
China's admission to the U.N. (While balking at such a "lackey" position, Canada 
has conceded that it will support Chinese recognition in the U.N.) . 3) That 
Canada act as a virtual "cheering section" in Red Chinese attempts to invade 
Taiwan. This final demand mocks accepted diplomatic precedent. We recognize 
Britain, without necessarily agreeing to its claim to the Falkland Islands; Canada, 
likewise, recognizes i^rgentina, without necessarily supporting its claim to the 
Falkland Islands. Shen Shan emphasized the stupidity of the usual reasons cited 
in favour of recognition for Red China. "You can't ignore 700 million people.' " - 
Recognizing Red China merely recognizes the slave-masters of the 700 million. It 
serves only to perpetuate their usurped power. Condemning these people to 
perpetual tyranny (as we have the peoples of Eastern Europe) by recognizing their 
rulers is in fact no real recognition of the people. Trade will be facilitated. "We 
are already trading with Red China, diplomatic relations or not. "We will be able 
to have a voice and embassy in Peking." Britain's embassy took several years to 
persuade the Red Chinese to release one of their citizens. The British officials 
are not allowed to see any government officials: they are held virtually incommuni- 
cado - some embassy i The Peking government deliberately allowed a twenty day 
seize by demonstrators against the French embassy. Peking ignores and humiliates 
Western diplomats. Mr. Shen Shan stressed not only the lack of any positive 
advantages to recognizing Red China, he also warned of possible (indeed, probable) 
dangers. Canada would become open to Red Chinese spies and subversives. 
Embassy officials could more readily pass money and training on to local Maoists. 
Already the Maoist Internationalists have bookstores in Ottawa, Halifax, Montreal 
and Vancouver. Since January the communist New China News Agency has carried 
three reports of their meetings in Canada. Their Toronto band has a propensity for 
violence and has a lengthy entry on the police blotter. The Maoists, Shen Shan 
felt, would seek to widen the French-English split. Canada would soon have the 
dubious honour of being the centre for Maoist activity in North America . 

All in all, a very enlightening and frightening evening. Some of us were 

nauseated with shame that our government is dragging our honour through the mud 

in negotiations for a booby prize - the great honour of being allowed by Mao Tse 

Tung to recognize Red China.

Man of the Month award, which ought to be given for the greatest contri- 
bution to Western Civilization, ought to go to Judge Julius J. Hoffman of the U.S. 
district court in Chicago. After months of being the target for scurrility, obscenity, 
childish defiance, and moronic disrespect, the judge has decisively moved to 
uphold the dignity of the court - an essential institution in our civilization. Every 
defendant has a right to his say and to his defence. He does not have the right 
to make a mockery of court proceedings. This, the Chicago Seven (including 
Jerry Rubin, Thomas Hayden, Rennie Davis, Abble Hoffman) aided and abetted by 
Attorneys Kunstler and Weinglass had done repeatedly. They have heckled and 
mimicked the judge; they have violated court orders; they have refused to stand 
when the judge entered. In a word, they have sought to make an outhouse circus 
out of a court of law. By slapping these malfactors with contempt sentences, 
ranging 48 months and 13 days (Attorney Wm, Kunstler of New York) for 24 counts 
of contempt to six months (Abble Hoffman), Judge Hoffman has upheld respect for 
the court. The sentences are drastic but just: the defendants and their attorneys 

all along showed r'^'" f^n '^'**n^^'^''.t (c>'<'Pri r»1»rr<lTr *o'~rriO r'^sn'-O*" f'-^y t'T; \rr^'}*rm-\r of 

the court. The principle of court administered justice must be upheld. Afraid 
to let the jury decide on the evidence alone, the defendants sought to divert 
attention by acting like juveniles that hadn't been toilet trained. Judge Hoffman 
not only had a trial to preside over; but had as well to defend the dignity of the 
court. He met the challenge well. In an age where permissiveness often 
sanctions any excess or any disrespect for the essential institutions of our 
civilization (religion, patriotism etc.), Judge Hoffman faced a demanding 
challenge - to swim against the stream - he has responded well: a credit to 
both himself and the American judiciary.

Ihe following is the text of a press release issued to Toronto radio and 
T.V. stations on Saturday 21st. February. Shortened versions were issued to the 
three Toronto newspapers and to the Canadian Press Service the following day. 

"The Ed mund Burke Society feels that the demonstration this afternoon in 
front of the U.S . Consulate on University Avenue, to protest the conviction f or conr 
tempt and conspira cy of the 'Chicago 7', is yet another part in the continuing 
assault by left- wing revolutionaries on law and order; in this instance, by trying 
to martyr the insolent, hairy renegades who showed such gross contempt for 
Judge Julius Hoffman's court. 

This indicates a complete rejection of the Rule of Lav/: that is to say, 
rule by the will of the people as expressed through their elected 
representatives. In other words, today's demonstration v/as a back-up 
to those who, while paying pious lip-service to democratic principles, 
in reality have nothing but contempt for those who work and pay taxes in 
order to establish as just and fair a society as human nature will permit. 

These are the people who would use the rights and privileges granted to 
them by our free society, to destroy the rights and privileges of the vast 
majority of decent, hard-working, tax-paying citizens". 

Radio coverage was good, cur dissent being registered by CHUM, and 
CFRB (AM and FM). The newspapers ignored us, as did the CBC (naturally). 
At the time of writing, it is not known whether or not CP provided us with any 
out-of-town coverage. V\/'hy the newspapers ignored us can be at least partly 
explained by the number of left-wingers who have succeeded in worming their 
way into the fourth estate. In the case of the Globe and Mail, however, the 
failure to 'balance' the story came as no surprise. V^/arren Gerrard of the City 
Desk stated that they "had a story", and were not interested in any other 
details, i'and we' re not interested in your point of view either" . 

On the whole, we were satisfied with the coverage that the radio 
stations gave our point of view. As for the newspapers, I am reluctantly forming 
the opinion that someone "up above" is getting scared of the inroads that we are 
now so deservedly making into Canadian politics, and has passed the word to 
boycott us. 

Somewhat of a backhanded compliment.'

been completely to the point. Businessmen particularly, as exemplified by the 
Canadian Council on Fair Taxation, have complained bitterly about proposals which.

And yet the White Paper on Taxation, horrendous though its portents may 
be. Is but a part in the continuing plan to painlessly and knowingly bring us to a 
Communist-type of society. Since his election in 1968, with Pierre Trudeau at the 
helm, we have been inflicted with: 

!• Amendments to the Criminal Code, making it easier 

for homosexuals and perverts to practice their odious 
activities, thereby contributing to the general moral 
decay in our socieLv; 

?• Bill 75-C. allowing the government to arbitrarily limit 

debate on Bills before Parliament: 


Plans for setting up a government information service. 
"Information Canada", to disseminate government propa- 
ganda to the people, 

(Hitler himself couldn't have done 





Plans to recognize Red China on the alleged grounds 
that "you can't ignore 700,000,000 people". Does 
anyone seriously think that we are helping those 
700,000,000 people by giving the diplomatic seal of 
approval to the dictatorial regime that is oppressing 
them? Maybe we shouldn't have bothered to fight 
Vv^orld War II after all ; 

Medicare. (OHSIP) . which is not economically v iable, 
and represents a vicious monopoly of the worst, (i.e. 
governmental) kind. In addition. It is an inexcusable 
infringement on the right of free choice; the right of 
each and every citizen to decide which health insurance 
plan is the best for him under his own particular circum- 
stances, and to negotiate the price and terms of such a 
plan with a person or organization of his own choice; 

Bill C-3, supposedly designed to eliminate "hate" 
literature, and which could effectively turn the "Just 
Society" into the "Gagged Society", The amount of 
legal overkill contained in this pious travesty is ridic- 
ulous to say the least. The Edmund Burke Society will 
continue to fight this odious bill. It is worth pointing 
out here that C-3 can be justifiably opposed on the cgcunds

of its being used to silence political opposition to the 
government are considerable. 

The White Paper on Taxation, already discussed. 

The majority of these impositions, (the exceptions being the Criminal Code 
amendments and the proposed recognition of Red China), constitute shocking examples 
of the dictatorial arrogance of Doctrinaire Socialism; that is to say, the belief that 
citizens should have unpopular schemes forced upon them, whether they like it or not, 
because the socialists, in t heir ivorv towers , hav e decided what is good for the 
people, without any regard to what the peo ple actually want, ( or. for that matter. 
don't want) , and because the 'divine right' of socialism demands that the people be 
forcibly made to do as required in spite of their protests, as they are considered 
too stupid to know what is Ih their best interests. 

Let us consider, one by one, these specific manifestations of liberal/bocialist 
arrogance and self-righteously dictatorial suppression of the rights and responsibilities 
of the individual. Bill 75-C was the climax to a struggle between the Government, 
(potential dictatorship), and the restraining forces of Parliament, (direct, all-party 
representation of the people). This negation of the principles of Parliamentary 
Democracy should need no further explanation. "Information Canada" will come 
into existence on April 1st t his year, ( appropriate) . and means that the Government 
will completely control the issuance of Federal statistics and information to the

icre to the very foundations of our free and Democratic society. The V/iiit- Pan- on 
laxation is, of course, perhaps the most severe blow of all, as far as the Icnn t-m 
IS concerned. It hits hardest in two directions: increased business taxes v;^U 
greatly reduce the number of smaller and "family" -type businesses, resu'ting 
eventually in the virtual disappearance of Free Enterprise, (and the entrepreneurs 
themselves, to more favourable tax climates); and the capital gains taxes, togeth^-r 
with tne totalitarian "Valuation Day", will cast a smothering damper upon personal 
initiative, an intrusion into personal privacy, unequalled in the v estern V/orld, and 
coinparable only to the Godless dehumanization and contempt for human rights shown 
by the Communist dictators in East Europe and Asia, 

AndremembeL,_Trudeai^has achieved all this in less than two vear^ . There

Is the Trudeau Administration intended to be the beginning of the end? 

In our leaflet, ".E ast Wind over Ottawa ", issued during the 1968 Federal 
uection campaign and predictably condemned (by the Trudeaucrats) as "hate literature" 
we concluded: "The citizens of Canada must not be taken in by a veteran social- 
Itarian who knows how to use dialectical double-talk and wear a 'conservative' 
mask when it suite his purpose". 

V/hat do you say now?

By unanitEouG vote of tht Coun-11 cf the Edmund ourke Society, at 
Its meeting on ..priL 14th, it was decided to proceed immediately 
with plans to open an EB3 bookstore-he.-dquprters in Toronto. Tar^^t

-lal quantities of r-r.dy 2ash to tide us over the first few tncnths. 
When many EB3 members are willing to risk their physical safety to 
stand up for freedom, the v-::ry least that any supporter should be 
prepared to do is to give an amount equivalent to what he spends on 
smokes end drinks, for ont.' month, toward the cost of maintaining 
.he bookstore. The bookstore will provide us with a permanent mailing 
address and an easily accessible location for meeting the oublic and 
lor informal gatherings or our own. Th.. forces seeking to destroy 
Western civilization all have their bookstores: the Maoists at 721 
aerrard ot. E.; the Moscow-line i'eds at 72 Gerrard St. v/.; the Trot- 
skyites at Cumberland and Yonge 3t., not to mention th.-: myriad por- 
nography pits. In a difficult d^.-cisiun, the- Council voted' to forego 
a booth at the Canadian_Na^j^naJ._Exhibi_t ion this year, and concen- 
trate on a bookstore. It's aLcut time f ree-enterorise cidvocates and

_ AS Press Officer of EBS, I feel that some clarification is re- 
quired regarding the varied, and, as usual, often inaccurate news- 
paper reports of the events at the Lenin Centennial Banquet on ?ri^.,.v , 
''^^f^-.u^f ', P^'^^icularly as several actions and comments were wrongly 

as EBS spokesman.

The story itself is adequately covered elsewhere in this issue; 
by way of personal comment, however, I can say that the worst cart of 
the evening, for me, was not what happened inside the Hall, but the 
1 Tightening experience of running the gauntlet ci' the ethnic anti- 
Communists in the long walk up to the door, f.t the time, the demon- 
strators thought that the "^,33 members going inside were Ccmmvinists 
(naturally), and all I can say is, I don't know if the ethnics scared 
the Reds, but they sure scared me i Thank the Lord they're en cur side.

While many of our people were badly mauled by the Leninists and 
their GPU goons, many of them having had wine bottles smashed over

anyone who knows Bill can vouch, this young man ccmoines a genuinely 
gentle and unassuming nature with an unyielding sense of comclttaent 

to the anti-Communist cause. A 

man of few words, thoughtful, eager to

his time, er

he was brutally stabbed in the back, not once, but twice, and had to 
be hospitalized. This reporter was on hand when he emerged from the 
Hall, somewhat in a state of shock, his clothes torn, his glasses 
gone, and stains on his jacket which I hoped were not blood (they 
proved to be so). As yet unaware of the wounds in his back, his con-

unsympathetic ears in the first policeman he spoke to: it was all 
his own fault, he should not have gone in there, etc., etc. Event-

him to try to get the coat and glasses. That was the last I sa'." of

The only explanation would seem to be that the cclioe were an- 
xious to put the br-kes on possible indignant demands from E.B3 that 
the assailant be arrested and charged with assault with a deadly wea- 
pon. This kind cf thing might have oroven embarassing to the Libe-al- 
Trudeauvnik establishment, vhich is presently grovelling before the 
Bed wtrlcrds (whose stooge "Ambassadors" were the stars of the even- 
ing), in its cynical, unrelenting cursuit oi "friendly Canadian-Soviet 
relations." This might also explain the strange behaviour of the 
staff at 3unnybrook Hospital the next day, who had Bill removed to a 
private room, refused to let anyone see him ( nart icularly tht news

no doubt that there is, in the words of our Press Officer, Jeff 
^2^9j-l, in his statement to GFTC-TV, "an official ccver-up" under

took the Trudeauvnik censorship squad to swin? into action to kill 
this story before it got too far...

frontery, but pretty damn foolish as well. It is like saying that ra- 
dium treatments are as bad as cancer, or the policeman on the 
beat is as bad as a burglar. 


We should like to know precisely what motivated tli..3e flagrant 
breaches of anti-Communist solidarity on the Dart of Messrs. Zajac 
and ilykytczuk. As wu never cease hammering hoDie, divisions and 

- B - 

quarrels within the ranks of the ,?nti-Communi3t movement, 
and religious antagonisms, simply do the enemy's work for

It is to bti expected that the enemy should mak-i some effort to sabot- 
age our work, our ever-growing, broad-based, multi-organizational 
solidarity, by such strategy; it '"ould be sheer stupidity on our part 
not to be aware of it and not to take aporopriate measures to protect 
our movement accordingly. If Messrs. "ajac and Lykytczuk had any mis- 
givings re E3S and its strategy, they had ample opportunity to express 
themselves on the matter beforehand within the framework of the Co- 
ordinating Committee. To go mouthing anti-EE3 slanders to the press 
in the course of an action is sheer treachery, and will be treated as 
such. We neither expect nor require the approval of such milkshake 
militants; they are entitled to their little opinions, no matter how 
stupid. What we do require of them, and -fill continue to require of 
them, is that they refrain from stabbing us in the back in the course 
of the common struggle, a surely not unreasonable expectation. (7»' hen 

it comes_to backstab bing, it see :;:s th

bad as the; 


.de".) We mu:;t unmask and weed cut all informers, 

a£ e n_t_s_£ r vo c_2_^ e ur_s , and infiltrators within our ranks, as a matter of 
elementary political hygiene and security. Such traitors do the work 
of the enemy for him, and are ultimately more dangerous to the anti- 
Communist movement than the avov^ed Leninists themselves. The anti- 
Communist movement must be cleansed of all narrow, provincial, and in- 
sular bickering and b-^ckbiting, which only serve to protect the Red 
imperialists from the full impact of a united anti-Communist effort. 
E33 fully expects to be reviled and slandered by th:^ Leninists and 
their Liberal lackeys (it goes with the territory), but it is intol- 
erable when such treatment is meted out to us from these from whom we 
have the right to expect some minimal loyalty, courtesy, and respect 
(if not sympathy) as from allies in the common cause. EB3 will not 
tolerate these niggling, abusive slanders of the enemy being retailed 
by sanctimonious, so-called "anti-Communists" (whose idea of fighting 
Communism seems to be to come out and throw an egg at a Red every five 
years, then to run home and hide under the bed for another five years) 
in an apparent effort to sow dissension and suspicion and to split 
the anti-Communist movement into quarreling sectarian factions, all 
fighting among themselves, to the imn.ense satisfaction of the PCremlin 
and Feiping. Canadian anti-Communists are learning the price of effec- 
tive common action: solidarity. Once an action is underway, cur watch- 
v;ord must be: solidarity all the wayl 



Apart from the foregoing, one can all ready anticipate the sort of 
criticisms "-hich we shall be getting from sobre, respectable, indust- 
tious, and above all, practica 1 citizens: the scheme was foolhardy, 
impractical, what could you hope to achieve, etc., etc. On the face of 
it, of course, such objections are unanswerable, offered, as they will 
be, within the narrow context of the merely practical. There is more 
to it than that, however: such "practical" people, sitting at home 
watching television, reading the sports pages, or the financial pages, 
will, as usual, have entirely missed the point. These are not "bad" 
people, they are merely "good" people who are politically sleepwalking. 
Such people never make history (Pasternak's "men with watchchains"? ) 
for they have no sense of history, least of all of the present crisis 
of history in which they are participating, usually as passive onlook- 
ers, mired in the lotus-eating escapism and non-ccm::;ittment which dis- 
courages them from ever truly facing the forces which are moving them 
and using them and which, more than anything else, are responsible 
for the erosion of authentic democracy and civic ccurage and respons- 
ibility in the Western world. This is wh^t makes the "silent majority" 
not only silent, but immobile in tl:e face of a Communist challenge in 
our midst promoted by militant minorities. Cur practical majority has 
not heeded, nor even understood, the warning of Ed Putler; "This is 
unquestionably not -oing to be a quiet, pl.^^cid '-crld. It is going to 
be a violent, revolutionary -orld for decades, perhaps for generations", 
(Cf. REVOLUT ION IS ...Y rR0re3S:0N, Twin Circle publishing Co., New York, 
1968). St: lin once s-id, ".',*■- vo luticns are made by militant minorities"; 
he might have added, ".actinj: on passive, uncommitted majorities". 

Yi/hat was the point? Essentially this: a handfull of people, fund- 
amentally committed to the struggle against Leninism and the defense

of human freedom and personal dignity, b'.-;li::,-ved It important that, on 
this obscene occeslcn, the Leninist authorities p,nd their C&nsdian 
stooges be made to understand that their Or-wellinn orgy of Lt.nin- 
wcrship was not fcing to take pl^^-e without some sharp, syraboli^^, rut 
unforgetable expression of the 'Contempt and disgust of the Canadian

F. Paul Froniin 

The ink frotn the front-page coverage of cur anti-Lenin demon- 
stration (April 3rd) had scarcely dried when ve learned of a less 
dramatic but equally insidious conmemoret ion of the centenary of 
Lenin's birth. The C i t ^ ,. . K a j-, I_ 3 r a n c h of the Toronto Pub lic^^Library 
was to hold a display of Lenin books and posters, weekdays, from 
April 13th to 24th. 

On the 9th and 10th of April, EES launched a massive phone-in 
protest campaign. Various ethnic groups joined in. Over t'wo hundred 
and fifty calls deluged both the Library and l;:r. _E . K., Campbell, the 
head librarian. I-{aving first been informed of this exhibii: by a 
source in the Canadian Co mmunist Tart y, 'pe believed that this Lenin 
display was to be used as propaganda. The librarian at the City Hall 
Branch indicated concern. It seems there had been other Lenin exhib- 
its in London and St. Catherines. UNESCO had announced its sponsor- 
ship of a symposium to be held at Tempere, Finland, under the theme 
"Lenin and the Development of Science, Culture, and Education", and 
the yN_Commission^ on Euman_ Rights had adopted a resolution hailing 
Lenin as a "prominent humanist" and celebrating his "significant, 
practical and theoretical" contributions "to the development and re- 
alization of econoffiic, social and cultural rights." Stac ked up c g- 
ainst Lenin, Hitler, we suppose, would have to , run_a_DQor_3eco_ndj__he

UNESCG circularized all its member libraries 

0U3 regime . It seem; 
urging them to commemorate the "prominent humanist", Lenin ("Cur mor- 
ality is completely subordinated to the class struggle"). The Toronto 
Public Library responded 'with servile obedience (who said one world 
government isn't a' threat?). The librarian at the City Hall Branch 
assured us that the exhibit would be strictly literary. Every author, 
it was claimed, upon the centenary of his birth, was called to the 

public's attention (like Edmund Burke? Le nn Tro tsky? Cr Niccolo 

igachiavelli?) . An employee of the Library said that she certainly 
hated Lenin and all he stood for, and then revealed that it had been 
suggested to them that pr ogr ess Books; handle the display. Now, Pro- 
gress Books just happens to be the quasi-official Communist publish- 
ing house in Toronto, which, among other ventures, recently published 
a new book by ex-Party leader, Tim B uck ("7.hat is not so well under- 
stood, however, is that Lenin w^-is the organizer of the whole revol- 
utionary movement, including the Communist Party of .Canada " ) , w h i c h 
may be picked up at much reduced prices at Cole's discount counter. 
As this display was advertized in the communist C A N .I D I AN T RIBU N £ , 
and since the librarian mentioned that Book "or Id (you guessed it, 
the Red bookstore on Gerrard St.) was supplying the posters, "-e knew 
that this display could not help but be propaganda. The political na- 
ivete of the librarian was incredible. The arrogance of her superior, 
Mr. Campbell, had to be heard to be believed. 

On Friday, April lOth, our Press Officer, Jeff Good?. 11, croke the 
story to the press. CKUL and CffiY reported our protest on their rad- 
io news that afternoon. That evening, this reporter and Er. Goodall 
blasted the TPL in an interview on CJRT-i-lI (99.1 on your H'l dial). 
Both the D..ILy STAR and the GLOBE & !!.:;.IL carried the story on the 
following day.

The shocking abuse of our public libraries for Leninist propagan- 
is an indication of the success the x'abian infiltrators have had 
our country. Working secretly, like a worm in an apple, the Fabian: 
constantly subvert and undermine They operate by deception. Lenin, 
they tell the innocent, is p "humanitarian". (He ii.ust be respectable, 
see, his books are publicly honoured at the City Hall Library.) This 
is the sort of insidious brainwashing to which the Canadian people 
are being subjected. .1 startled librarian gasped, "But no one has 
ever complained before!", v/ell, we are complaing now! The lone sleep 
of complacency is over in Toronto. From new on, the Red fronts, the 
concealed communists, and their helpers, are going to be exposed. 
From now on, we're going to call a spade a spade. If the TPL is going 
to call Lenin a great humanitarian, then they may as "^ell call the

Dear Sir: 

Just a short note to congratulate the members of the Society for 
the effort at the Memorial Gardens, April 3rd. 

I attended the meeting on I'arch 24th when the speaker was Jacques 
llarcuse. The impression I received was that you people are very ded- 
icated in your approach to the communists. My only thought was that 
I hoped your membership would double, at least. I am still interest- 
ed in attending more of your meetings. 

please find enclosed coffee money for a few of the members.

"In 1940, when Nazi Germany was sweeping through France, it is 
sometimes forgotten that it was the United Kingdom, Canada, Lnshrall- 
and New Zealand that alone stood for freedom after the fall of 
France. Just at that time, the USSR entered into an agreement be- 
tween llolotov and Ribbentrop in August of 1939, whereby they divided 
all the areas of Europe between themselves. It was at that time that 
it was decided that some action would be taken against these Repub- 
lics on the Baltic. In June 19^0, the Soviet Government delivered an 
Ultimatum to the Lithuanian Government, demanding the formation of a 
pro-Soviet administration, and, before the date of the Ultimatum had 
expired, the Red soldiers moved in,..

openly advocating the overthrow of the Government of Canada by force. 
They are predicting that there will be a revolution within two years. 
What they are saying constitutes offences against the Criminal Code

Jean-Louis Gannon - Former Red Agent Appointed Inf orr-ation-Canada Boss 

As of April l3t, 1970, Information-Canada has been in operation 
under the directorship of one Jean- Louis Garnon. Gan;non, by party- 
appointment, has been endowed the the rank of deputy minister and 
given a salary in the 4i30,000 to v40,000 range to feed the public all 
the news according to the Trudeau machine. Since this appointment, 
Conservative MPs in the Commons have questioned whether Gagnon has 
received security clearance. Grave doubts have been cast on Gagnon's 
background by certain revelations published by the Canadian Intelli- 
gence Service operating cut of Flcsherton, Ontario. 

Recently, the press has reporte

Based on CIS information, St raight Talk ran an expose of Jean- 
Louis Gagnon in October 1968, at the time Trudeau appointed him as co- 
chairman of the Bi-Bi Commission. Some of the highlights included: 

19'*5-Gagnon started a pro-communist publication called "Vivre. 

1936-He was expelled from the weekly, "la nation", because oi his 
avov;ed communist sympathies. 

1938-On orders from top Red, Stanley Ryerson, Ga -non lauched the 
French-Canadian Revolutionary Party. 

1939-Followed Communist Party line and opposed World Mar II.

Reds and supported all-out i\rar effort

-A secret meeting was held in June 1962 in Montreal's Windsor 
Hotel by key Communists to discuss the infiltration of tne Que- 
bec and Federal governments. A Montreal weekly identified three 
men attending as Dr. Raymond Boyer, "Danny" Daniels (old-time 
Red ar'itator) and Jean-Louis Ga':-,uon.

dercovpr agent for the RCMP , personally knew Gagnon within the Red ap- 
paratus in Canada. They first met at the Valcartier Camp Unemployed 
Project, when Gagnon v/as a member of the Young Communist League, hav- 
ing been sent there by top Red, Stanley Ryerson. In 1936-37, he became 
Secretary-Treasurer of L'Union Nationo.le Ouvriere. Therein he suceed- 
ed in creating a com.munist coll of four members. When exposed through 
cell documents found by Paul Bouchard, the four Reds and Gagnon were 
expoll od publicly as Communist infiltrators. During this time, Gagnon 
was a dues-paying member of the Communist party. Although he worked 

for British Intclligcfncc; diu-ing t!ic war. 

Gagnon was first recommended 

to the British Foreir.n Office by Donald Maclean, th.j Soviet agent m 
tiie British Foreign Office who later fled to the U.S.S.R. When Gagnon 
spent more time looking up Soviet contacts, than doing his job, Brit- 
ish Intelligence dropped him. The late RCI.F superintendent, John Leo- 
pold expressed disgust wh./n the neme of G'lguou ',;as omi-iit-d from the 
report of the Royal Commission purnnnnt to the Goucenko revelations, 
one of which plairlv indicated tant Gagnon had supplied the "D-Day" 
landinn- date to ColoT.el Zabotin of th,j Soviet Union. Unlike Alger Hiss, 
Gagiion'has been too sclir-wd to sue any of his accusers, thereby keeping 
his ro<;'a-^l out of the public view. "Surely the Trudeaucrats , however, 

aware of Gacrion's background. From his appointment to Informiation 

Canada, one can only assume the obvious,

So, from stories cf a quarter century ago, we come back to 
1970 and the Edmund, Burke Society. The message? I will tell it 
quite simply: Cn~February ll^h, I stood outside the Parkdale Cin- 
ema where I SHALL NEVER FORGET was being shown, and distributed 
leaflets publicizing EB3 to those entering and le-^.ving. Before I 
went inside to see the film (I already had my ticket), I was ap- 
proached by a man I was soon to recognize as the actor playing the 
part of the leader of the partisans in the movie, Mr. John VaJko . 
He invited me to attend a function of the Ukrainian-Canadian com- 
munity, and I wholeheartedly accepted. On leaving after the show, 
I thought about his dedication, and reflected upon how many such 
men there must be in Toronto, let alone in Canada. And this brings 
us to a dominant theme in the philosophy of the Edmund Burke Socie- 
ty: that all anti-Communists living in Canada, regardless cf their 
ethnic^origin, should work together in the fight against communist 
agitation and subversion in Canada, and that our organization, 
Canadian in every sense of the word, provides an effective spear- 
head by means of which all anti-Communist groups can unite into 
one powerful voice in the struggle against totalitarianism, instead 
of being so many lost voices in'^the wilderness...

The past seven week- h.= ve been a time of unprecedented acti^at/ an pub- 
licity for the '.yj L .> L-., . S;^ >I TI* ^'e hav^ receiv;H r-xtenr:ive •'n- reps,\tr^d

m this is-ue of ^TRAII^Hr .aLK ; Several radio and T.'/. proirramines are in the 
offing for the near future. A large in-depth write-up for one of Canada's nation- 
al magazines is also in store for later this suminer.' 

^'■^" 6 — Fifteen members of the EQ^'ljlID 3URKE SOCIETY attend an op.^n mr-eting in 
■Scarborough held by local M.P. Weatherhead, Also prese-t were Conservative i4,P., 
Jack Horner, and Liberal y.,P. for Etobicoke, Alistair Gillespie, E.3.S. handed 
out a large number of leaflets criticizing Benson's White Pap.=;r, During the 
question period, many of our men got up to denounce the "hata-bill''^ to ask why 
the arrogant M.P. "s ( especially Gillespie) refused to answer constituent mail; 
and why, if trudeau were trying to build a just society, his economic proposals 
were tailored to crucify the hard-working, producing majority. The- large suburban 
audience roundly acplauded our questions, F. Paul Fromjn, who spoke en the themes 
just mentioned, received a long, noisy ovation from the. audience — an ovation 
which embarrasses the slick phonies or the platform. 


two day's no-ice, the EDhWJD BURKE SOCIETY organized a hard core of 

forty men. We were prepared for trouble. The local left was spoiling to damage 
public property and to confront the police during their "day of rage" over the 
Kent State incident — no ''day of'' aftr the murderous invasion of Czecho- 
slovakia, mind you. With beautiful green, black, and white flags with "' E,3.3." 
lettered on them, we paraded two by two down University Avenue, behind the flags 
of Canada, the United States, and Nationalist China. We felt that it was r.ece- 
ssar/ to let the public know that there was another side to the Cambodian issue. 
While the liberal and leftist cress roundly condemned Nixon's belated half -measure 
in Cambo'^ia, we f-;lt it es-ential for someone to stand up for the belief that 
only an aggressive programme aimed at hitting the enemy wherever he masses men 
or 3uppli.:--s can win the Vietn>am war. 

At the U.S. consulate, our men confronted two hundred bedr-'g.-led, hairy 
hipeies whining" all we are saying is give peace a chance*'. Don't remember 
them shouting that to the_Vietcong speak ers ^ who visited loronto earli ;r this 
year . We counterpicketed them for over half-an-hour. Then, a larger group esti- 
mated between twenty-five hundred and five thousand arrived from City Kail, 
Some were carr3''ing Vieteong flags and others the r d and black flags of commun- 
ism and an-^rchy. Only then wtre the leftists brave eeough to attack„ In the 

ensuing m.elee, ten of our members were arrested all but one for the minor 

misdemeanor of disturbing the n -ace by fighting. The processing of these men 
took an incredibly long time at City Hall jail. Not until iJ-sOC a,m.o the next 
morning ( Sunday) were we able to get our wearv but undaunted boys out of jail. 
In most cases, the Grown evidence against our men is flimsy, if not non-existant. 
It seems, if one is to believe Deputy Chief Ackroyd of the hetro Police force, 
that the police felt that they had to arrest some rightists to appease the left- 
ist barbarians, who were rioting. Our men were attacked and defended themselves; 
as the courts will show, self-defence does not constitute causing a disturb-=.nce 
by fi~hting. 

Lim.ited as our resources are, E.3.3. will do all it can to see that 
everyone of our members is acquitted. We have helped those arrested arrange for 
lawyers -^nd will help them with fines, if -my. 

In prison, l.:ftists, both Maoist and Trotskyite, expressed admiration 
for the courage and ruegedness of our demonstr^^tors. The E.B.i. is feared and 
rcspecte'-' by the local l>;ft. 

Television ( Channels 6 and 9), radio ( all stations) and press ( all 
three dailies in Toronto and newpapers acroes Canada) gav: wide publicity to 
our actionso Excellent pictures in the TORONTO TELEGRil^i of our Ke-- Wilson 
trying to retrieve a flag snatched from him by a Maoist and bleeding froma 
scalp wound inflicted by some "peacenik's" placard, amply illustrated what 
some arrest-happy officers ov rlooked — -E.B.S, members were defending them- 
selves. For the next week, letters to the editor and reports on the- preliminary 
court appearances continued to call attention to our counterdemonstration. To 
capitalize on this publicity, we ran ads ( see E.?.3. D THE PRE.:S , p,3) in 
the GLOBE .''.ND MAIL and in the TO'O' TC "ELE^O'^JuV, As described at ien.:th by

The next day's TQRQ!\iTO TL-LEGFLU" ! cq-ried this item, as well, Rndio stations CKFH, 
CFRB" and chum all reported our intentions and were highly critical. Obviously, 
the thought of a group having the gall to make the idle rich and the liberal 
collaborationists put their names where their money is was too much for the tender 
sensibilities of certain media opinion-makers, 

Ray 25 — Jeff Goodall, our Pres=^ Officer, was the guest of a local Ottawa T.V, 
news show. Jeff was on for ten minutes of prime time and was seen by an audience of 
over half a million viewrrs. Fielding qu 'stiorj-s from NDP'er, Douglas Fisher, Jeff 
delivered a low-key and credible performance, that was highly praisrd by Ottawa 
E.B.S. members. 

Flay 26 — Toron-co area T.V. re-run of F, Paul Fromm's smash appearance as guest on 
UNDER ATTACK ( filmed and first shown last fall). This programme is being re-run 
?cross Canada^ and, in its wake, letters and 'phone calls of support and inquiry 
are pouring in to E.B.S, 

May 31 — Two hundred strong, the E.B.S. protests Leninism and the mistreatment of 
Soviet-occupied Ukraine, At City Hall Square we hoot, whistle, and argue in a for- 
ceful and non-violent demonstration th-'t frazzles the 6OO -'peaceniks", who are 
still beating away at the Cambodia issue. ( see TORONTO DEMO Iv.-^TRATION„ iinY 31, 
p. 32.) 

June 1 —We receive front paf?e oicturf and coverage in tho GLOBE ;LND MAI^ over 
Sunday's demonstration. The TELEGRAM and the TOEONTO STAR and papers as far away 
as Edmonton carry the story of our counterdemonstration. Radio station LtiUH, tne 
greatest single perverter of youth and distorter of news in Southern ""^-^rio, 
reDorts for its bleary-eyed morning listeners that the E.B.S. whistled, shouted, 
and tried to ''Drovoke" the poor peaceniks. The presence of people willing to ^exx^ 
out our civilization to -narchy and communism is very provocative _ to ^s- ' ° ^ 
rf press coverage would be complete without mentioning th. communist i^i^^f^ 
TRIBUNE. According to this red fiction sheet the restraint *1 the ^eaic, .^^ 
peaceniks " served to check the fascistic Edmund Burke Society gan;: that wa. 
ching to provoke a cl''sh." 

T , , At every performance of the Red Armv Chorus during these days at Maple 
^^^•(fens, E,3.3. members carried protest signs , Some members wrote down ^ 
licence plat, numbers 5 others handed out pamphlets. Of these we had two J^P^s. 
one was a m.ock programme, which listed some of the bloody achievements ol tn^ Ked 
Army. People entering the Gardens were askgd if they intended to cross our picKuU 
line. Some remained iilent; others answered our quiet questions with rudeness. 
0ne brave family of three attacked one of our sixteen year old members » 01 ten the 
Red Army soldiers would file into the Gardens by the same door as the customers. 
At these times, they were heckled in Russian and English. By the final day of the 
performance, the soldiers all came armed with cameras to photograph the anti-co- 
mmunists, who dared to dissent. The affluence and indifference of many o^f the 
smug show-goers was a most denr'-ssing sight. Radio station CHUM and the June 5 
TOROFTO TELEGRAM reported our picket^line. " The night w-s full #f quiet menace, •' 
the Tely'- Pot r Goddard complain -d. 

June 5 ~ Jeff Goodall represented us in a debate on Vietnam at Boylan Collegiate, 
against professor Wilmot of York University. Joe Gen.^vese granted an interview 
with a reporter for SATUHE^'/f NIGHT magazine. Chairman D.C. Andrews travels to 
Arnprior to engage in a day-long seminar on the topic of youth, politics, a and 
revolution. He stole the show and illustrated his rousing lecture with the film- 
strip, THE GRE T PRET'NCE . Many of the students had alrady met E,B,S. through 
F. Paul Fromm's appearance on UMlER ATTACK or Jeff Goodall 's int.-rview on Ottawa 
T.V., a few days earli'r. 

June 7 — Council members, D.5J. Andrews, F. Paul Fronm, Joseph Genovese, and 
K.-'stus i'ikula grant ^n extensive interview for a story thit will appear on us 
later this summer in VvEti. KEND MAGaZINE . 

June 8 & 10 — On the 'th Joseph Genovese explains our stand on Vi.-tnam at 
William Lyon McKenzie Collegiate, His no-nonsense, miapoTogetic manner wins him 
the respect of some of the long-hairs, who make un an unfairly Intge proportion of 
the audience. The next day, Riverdale Collegiate hears our Vicfrnam speech; and 
on June 10, Joe Genovese goes on to Ym4c MfTnorial Collegiate ( again the topic 
is Vietnam) and notices that he g- ts mor-. rizz from some of the loftish teachers 
than he does from the students, 

June 12 — A full page write-up on us in the TORONTO TELEGRAIl by reportrr Vince 
Devitt, Unsympathetic, it lets our idf;as shine forLh. Good 
reactions to it. June 1^4. and I6, two young E.B.S. members hand out over I5OO 
copies of our pamphl- t, "What Is The E.B.S." near the Toronto Dominion Centre.

Our Montreal Correspondent 

Logically, when you're against y^ar, you must be for peace. But 
years of so-called peacr-ful demonstrations have rent logic into un- 
recognizable- shreds. And no-"here is this more evident than in Mont-

is not surprising to note, therefore, that a purported "pea^e" 

It ^ _ _ ^ ^ 

march to memorialize the'fcur students killed at Kent^(Ghio) State 
University on M.-y 4th, v:-s anything »ut peaceful. The little redniks 
made sure of that. 

What began --s a quiet "anti-war" march and memorial (this tim.^ 
with Cambodian overtones) exploded into a soree of vandalism and 
violent clashes y/ith the riot police. Some students from I^cGill Un- 
-llUllV organizc-d this latest orgy, offering their abhorrence at th-- 
gcings-nn in 3outh-East Asia, as v.-ell -s their deep pain over the 
events at Kent 3tate University as their reasons. Target Mc . I, in- 
evitably, was the US Consulate. 

The usual features of a Montreal "peace march" were present: 
fires were s^^t in the middle of the street, g,-rbage about, 
windows smashed and police attacked. Eight demonstrators were arres- 
ted by the police, including (v'hat else?) ^n inevitable its drai't d-*d- 
g'rr, who obviously saved his fiehting for the streets of yontreal, 
ratner thr-n the jungles ci: Viet Nam. 


Firemen were called in to 

ances, with the onrushi 

cop.: with the blazes, 


;o m^ 


cheap dramatics. Four coffins 

ng peaceniks. The march was not without 

State students, were 

purportedly symbolizing the four Kent 

Carried about the area of the Consulate, and 

students and professors called on Canadian universities to admit Am- 
eri'-ans "who, because of their convictions, h-^d deserted the forces 
or had refused induction." They denounced US President, Richari

The day of the disorders involving American agitators I saw three 
("ip-Ioads of American students pass down Yoiig^. Street. The students 
were 1-^aning out the windows blowing kisses and making the vi-tory 
si^rn with their fingers. I just 3hru£2ed it off as another indication 
of the general world-wid-^ brainwash youth is b-ring subj-ct^d to, but 
when, aft-jr th'^ fracas and the disclaimers of agitation immc:-diate ly 
brayed in the public ear by the we 11-organlzed American colony living 
here, I later s^,w on a back page of the 3tar, Pclioe figures showing 
that fifteen of th-^ ninety-odd arrested were indeed Amfcrionn ci1;izens, 
I felt another unassaugable pulse of a-hing in that oart of me that

Dear 3ir: 

L* 6 . , 

Congratulations - your street letter (V/H.'vT 13 TIIE EDI.:t:nD FTRKE 
SOCIETY?) has hit the n-'il on the liead. I, by profession, am a free 
lance helicopter pilot, a one time Malayan n;bb*-r olanter with seven 
bullet wounds re^eiv.^-d at the hands of Chinese (Leninist) ambush troops 
in May of 1950. I am sick and tired of re.-ding anti-Viet Nam war "stud- 
ent news". I flew bombi-rs in the 3t cond '.VorlJ -/ar and, like many others, 
risked ray life night because m2_country .= xpected it. I have seen Commun- 

- 1? - 

ism at close hand, end I pray t:o God that the USA r'rvfnnin:: strong en- 
ough to resist public opinion so far as Viet Nam is concerned - to 
remain in South-Effst Asia until the threat to the security of the non- 
Communist countries, including I/ialaysia, /^ustralia, ^.nd little Wew 
Zealand, is taken care of. 

To me, Viet Nam is the Chinese-Russian buffer. Pull out our troops 
at this time, and in a very short period, the Communists would have 
the lot. How does it feel to be an /-Australia n? The Japs almost Fuccc.f 
ed a quarter century ago, and they vere n et '^00 million strong. 


Good show, and keep it up! 

Capt. J. A. T. Jones, 
London, England. 

Dear Sir: 

You claim that y.u believe in FREE 3PEECH and that you are against 
the "hate bill". I find that ycu are not ccn-- istant (sic) in this 
matter. To quote from your literature, "Cur associate was instrumental 
in having ba nn'-;d from local magazine stands the childishly obscene and 
dang'^rously subversive Ramparts magazine." 

by this action you have proved that you are talking from both sides 
of your mouth at the same time. Ey bannin g this magazine or any other 
magazine, where is my freedom to read what I choose. I was ccns1 d-^ rJ :ig 
joining your organization, but anyone with an ounce cf a brain can see 
how contr-dictory you are in your views. As a Canadian I do net wish 
to hav.r my rights restricted. I wish to be able to READ what I wish 
and 3 AY what I wish. 

Jack Thompson, 

Editor's Note: Mr. Thompson, obviously, is confusing freedom_with 

license. One can no more read anything one likes than 
one can, mor'-lly, eat or drink anything one likes. There is a -^^aneerou^ 
demented custom g rowi ng in our society of g 

; t u i t o u sTy e 1<. vat i ng_ 


given d-sire o T th-r m oment tc^ t he status of 


The individual' 

presumed right ^.o eat is qualified by food and drug laws, liquor laws, 
etc., in ord-r to protect his health (p-^rrhaps his life), as well^as 
the peace and good order of th= community. In fact, all censorship, 
regulation, and legislation is based on no more valid a principle 
than the Rule of Law, which is the basis of rational freedom. Th^^ only 
other alt-i^rnative is anarchy, .'^s Lubor Eink wrote in his column for 
April 8th, "Even the most flexible pluralistic system cannot, of course 
accord the individual absolute freedom, for the diversity of under- 
standing and interpretation of freedom would lead either to r.narchy or 
to intolerable exploitation of the weak by the strong. This is the rc^a- 
son why even the most cermissive democracy finds it necessary to re- 
strict the freedom 3f its citizens by a set of laws and regulations 
deemed necessary for an orderly conduct of public and private affairs." 
In other words, freedom is not an absolute. 


V;e celieve Bill G-3 is not a rational, honest piece of legislation 
because it will not, in fact, be used to stamp out all "hate litera- 
ture", for which purposes it is a most clumsy instrument indeed. (Can 
ycu imagine actions being taken under the Bill to "stamp cut" the 
WITNESS ., THE CANADIAN JEV/I3H NEY/S , a:id all the Yankee -halting and 
Quebec-baiting publications? Even the new boss of Trudeau's "Indoct- 
rination Canada", Jean-Louis Gagnon, ("there is nothing to discover") 
like his boss, is a notorious •jntlcloricl On this ground, _ 3111 C-3 
cannot be taken seriously. It must, however, be taken seriously as a 
Juridif'^l instrument available for the selective suppression and per- 
secution of individuals and periodicals whose views are offensive t; 
the Establishment, or offensive to certain powerful pressure groups 
-iisposing of sufficient political leverage to be courted by the Estab-

In the matter of the banning of RAIJPARTS magazine in Mount forest, 
we can only extend our warmest commendation to the people of that com- 
munity for their resolute stand against this kind of printed pollution. 
This periodical combines obscenity, pornography, anti-American h?^te- 
mongering with pro-Peiping propaganda. It also retails grossly offen- 
sive anticleric propaganda. The managing editor, one Robert 3cheer , 
("It is essentially an organ of the foreign policy of the Soviet Union") 
has for years been active, quite openly, in Red fifth column activity 
designed to wreck the American war effort, and has been openly in con- 
tact'with his Leninist bosses in Prague, in Soviet-occupied Czecho- 
slovakia (Cf. Car l T. Ro wan's column, TliE NEW YCPJC "/CRLD JOURNAL TRIE- 
UNE, Feb. 24, lf^7). In tHe long run, this kind of psychcpolitical 
pollution may prove more destructive than the chemical pollution of 
our environment, and must be dealt with ruthlessly and decisively . _Er, 
Thompson says he wishes to read what he likes and to say what he likes.. 
He may, indeed, but if he contravenes the laws cf libel and slander, 
the laws against obscenity and blasphemy, he must not be surprised if 
he is called to account. If he insists upon polluting his own mind 
with printed pornography, he will, of course, pay the inevitable moral 
price. However, this kind of individual conduct cannot constitute an 
argument against the very real right of society to protect itself ag- 
ainst the smut peddlars and the purveyors of Peiping propaganda. Such 
activities are not by "right", but constitute the most criminal kind 
of moral and political sabotage. Bravo, Mount Forestl

"By stimulating class warfare on the periphery of the bourgeois world 
now here, now there, now in Burrua, now in Malaya, now in Iran, now in 
Indochina or Greece or Turkey or Italy, (the Soviets) will force the 
United States to be forever committed to the piecemeal defence of dem- 
ocracy on an expanding global front without conceivably ever meeting 
the real enemy face to face except in the form of bootlegged Russian 
tanks, Soviet-made planes, and disguised Soviet personnel. This ex - 
hausting process of attrition can con ti nue without t he str o nghold of 
the consp iracy ever experi en cing direct assault, while t he cost i n men ,

forces against the hoped-for day of complete exhaustion on the part of 
the United States, which will be expected to bear the lion's share of 
global defence. Should the lion falter or sustain a crippling wound, 
the Politburo will recognize the moment and send its horde across the 
moat already provided by its expendable satellites for the final en- 
counter with the V/est. Japan will be a prime target. The Philippines, 
bound to the United States by many ties, will be in mortal danger; and 
it is not outside the possibilities that Soviet Russia will one day 
claim klaska as rightful Russian land and attempt to repossess it, de- 
claring the sale of that territory by the Tsarist Government in 1867 
to have been a null-and-void betrayal of Russian interest by the Ro- 
manov dynasty."

fifth columnist (naturally), Ron Hnggart . 

To paraphrase something IVilliam F. Buckley Jr . once wrote about 
Eleanor Roosevelt , it may be said that following Ron Hnggart in search 
of mendacity is like following a lighted fuse in search of an explos- 
ive; one never has to wait very long. Hagtra r t lives in the fantas y 
world of rigi d , prism-^tlc Marcusean aiythology, in wh ich a n ti-Communists 
are Indiscriminately smeared as "the fo olish far rirht^'_' "(whatever tha t 
Lenini s t expression is supposed to mean) , while anarch c-socialist s , 
their middle class dupes, and other ideo l ogicnl j unkies of the Maoist 
Left, are c elebrat'-jd as "Negroes" in search ox "legitimate aspirations " , 
"peace demonstrators", etc . Trying to impose this unrealistic, negat- 
ive matrix upon the politico-empirical realities of our time is no 
easy task; it requires the arbitrary recasting of those realities in 
order to force them to fit the pro-Leninist presuppositions, super- 
stitions, and myths, a task in which anarcho-sociaiist propagandists 
have been engaged for about fifty years, and which was superbly satir- 
ized in George Orwell 's classic "1934" (the "ilinlstry of Truth"). At 
some point in his career, Haggart seems to have huffed and puffed, and 
in an access of extraordinary anti-intellectual hedonism, has finally 
learned to turn the trick. Since then, he has repeatedly demonstrated 
himself to be an Crv;ellian practitioner par excellence . 


Take, for example, his campaign against the Toronto Police Depart- 
ment for possessing and using a print of the American anti-Communist 
documentary film, REVOLUTION UNDERWAY. In April of last year, he wrote 
three columns denouncing it as a "racist film", "reckless political 
propaganda", and "dangerous". Haggart does not usually review films, 
but, you see, the Toronto Police Deoartment was using this film for 
briefing its personnel (and their woeful lack of political sophistic- 
ation indicates a crying need for more of this kind of training), and 
is of the essence of Haggart 's conception of his role in life to treat 
Toronto's Finest as th-jugh they constituted his very own, personal, 
moral slum project. Haggart' s campaign against this film, a way of at- 
tacking the Police (as is his custom), led to their Library print of 
this film being publicly hatcheted to pieces, in a ceremony reminisc- 
ent of Soviet and Nazi bookburnings, by Judge C. 0. Bick , Chairman of 
the B£ard_of_?o 11 ce_Commiss loners (who originally wanted to burn it 
publicly, until someone informed the learned Judge that to do so 
would be to contravene fire regulations!), a spectacle which might not 
have been out of pla'^e in Havana, Hanoi, or Peiping, and which provid- 
ed us with a graphic illustration of the power and the pressure at the 
disposal of a journalistic Jack the Ripper who is able to run inter- 
ference on behalf of "he leftwlng nazis by means of the resources ob- 
liginly provided by John Bassett. the publisher of the TELEGRAM, and 
producer of the Canadian production of HAIR.

editor of Detroit's prestigious Negro newspaper, the MICHIGAN CHRONICLE , 
to the effect that "there is an organized '^onspira'^y whi'^h is both 
national and has some international involvecient", as well as L ouis 
Lomax's revelations of Negro racist agitation in Detroit prior to the 
disorders in that city in 196?. But then, you see, revealing the film's 
documentation of Negro anti-Communist dissent and Negro perception of 
the obvious Leninist organization and synchronization of the disorders 
would have made it impossible for him to palm off his smeer of the film 
as anti-Negro, To nail down his smear, Haggart also fai l eii to quo te 
^. he narrator? s words about "the vast majority oT Negro /.meri cans" be in g 
ll fundamontally law abiding, loyal and patrio tic citizens ." The film 
excoriates the Ker ne r Commission's obvious and shameful whitewashing 
of the racial dis 
Negro frustration 
the Commission's 
the skillful, pro 

rders as being exclusively expressions of legitimate 
in the quest for inter-racial justice, as well as 

apparently deliberate "Emperor's Clothes" attitude to 
, ^ ifessional, and criminal coordination and execution of 
the operation on the part of notorious elements of the anarcho-socialist 
underworld in America, and that was enough for Haggart: the film had 
to be smeared as "racist". 

To fully document Haggart's career as a Yankee-baiting, cop-baiting, 
apologist for the lunatic left would require a dossier of some consid- 
erable proportions, ?or our present purposes, a few more items should 
suffice: On August 22, 19^8, he ran a column in which he characterized 
Immigration officers at US border crossing points as "Lawbreakers who 
work for the Government", because some of them had the temerity to co- 
operate with the FBI in the apprehension of deserters from the IJ3 Armed 
Forces attempting to use Canada as a refuge and base of operations for 
anti-American propaganda -and subversion. Readers may remember that 
about this time, our local Leninist fifth columnists ( William Spir a 
and his apparatus taking the lead) launched a determined campaign to 
persuade the Trudeau Compact to admit draft dodgers and deserters into 
our country automatically and to grant them "landed immigrant" status, 
a campaign which, given the complexion of the Trudeau administration, 
succeeded with shameful ease. Two days later Haggart devoted a column 
to the defence of one Greg Spears , an American draft dodger who had 
been fired from his job with the Parks Department of the Borough of 
York, thus indicating that lawbreakers on the public payroll do not 
invariably excite his disapproval, provided that they are i^merican 
traitors, Leninist fifth columnists, or some other kind of anarcho- 
socialist freaks who get their Jacobin jollies by clobbering anti- 
Communist patriots or assaulting a ooliceman. In other words, for Hag- 
gart, as for Rabbi Abraham x?einber g" and others of their ilk, it all 
depends on whose ox is being gored.

Not surprisingly^ Haggart, of course, considers American aid to Viet 
Nam as "dirty and degrading", and qualifies the highly organized and 
well-financed anti-Vietnamese agitation on the fiart of American an- 

and their zombie-like dupes as the "concern" of "ordinary and

"Imperialist", and in terns of Haggart's own judgecient of American aid 
to Viet Nam, as "dirty and degrading", Lamport, in short, and pace 
Haggart, is still against isolationism and the appeasement of aggres- 
ion. But with Haggart, it all depends on whose ox... etc, V/ith a straight 
face, Haggart describes the WC as "the more radical faction of the 
anti-war movement." In fact, it is not a "far^tion" at all , but a co - 
ordina ting committee of all the Leninist facti on s and se cts in our 
local com mu nist subcultur e, running the g amut from the Trotskyitcs 
ywho more or less contro l itT~ t o the Stalinists of the C ommunist Par t y , 
the social communists of the CCF-NDP, the Maoist psychopath s , as wel l 
as well as Jew-baiting friends a nd supp orters of the Lc n 1 n i s t - c o n t r o 1 led 
El Fatah and t he Pal e sti ne Liberation Organization . Some "faction", 
indeed I 

us of May of this year, of course, Haggart has found a new target 
for his vitriolic vituperation: the Edmund B u rke Socie ty. To his long 
and distinguished record of Yankee-baiting and cop-baiting, a new art 
has been added, that of "Burker-baiting" . His campaign against EES has 
been of such malicious proportions that his previous victims seem to 
have gotten off lightly by comparison. His famous column for Kay 12th, 
in which he purports to be discussing/ reporting the riot which broke 
out in front of the US Consulate when his anarcho-sociallst friends 
savagely attacked EES picketers and other anti-Communist demonstrators, 
is so wildly irresponsible and distorted that many people are persuad- 
ed that he must have been under the influence of LSD when he wrote it. 

Astonishingly enough, the police of Toronto have usually managed to 
"keep their cool" when the VlIC and its ragtag horde of political were- 
wolves staged their semi-annual anti-ZLmerican "hate-ins", resorting to 
force and violence only to defend themselves from the physi'^al assr.ults 
of violence-obsessed freaks with "Masochist-Leninist" tendencies, and 
to generally maintain order. Despite the artificially and 'cynically 
generated anti-/.merican hatred which had been building up ever .Ince 
Nixon's thrust against the formerly sacrosanct Leninist bases in 
"neutral" Cambodia, and the Kent University shootings, as v/ell as the 
gradually escalating picket actions at the US Consulate which this 
hatred produced, replete with the loud singing of obscene anti-police 
doggerel, the City Council nevertheless obligingly permitted the VMC 
to climax all this with a mass demonstration slated for May 9th, in 
coordination with similar activities in the USA and elsewhere. For 
this. Mayor Dennison and his administration must assume full respon- 
sibility, and must, sooner or later, be called to account. Perhaps it 
was the escalating provocation to which the police had been subjected 
in the first week of last i;ay which was responsible for their behaviour 
on that day, but whatever it was, they decidedly "lost their cool", 
and, for the first time on these occasions, ran amok. Having done so, 
it was to be expected that Haggart would have his usual field day of' 
cop-baiting fulmination, for they could not have provided him with 
more grist for his propaganda mills. However, in the event, something 
new was to be added to the Haggart ragout; along with the police, new 
targets for his Jovian thunderbolts appeared in his column: "hoodlum 
members of the Edmund Burke Society." To qualify thus, to be able "to 
upstage the police in Haggart's demonology, is surely an oblique comp- 
liment to our political effectiveness. In politics, as in life, it is 
important^to have the right enemies. Haggart hates us; Kunstler hates 
us. The differences between them are perhaps more biogenetic than pol- 
itical; we must be on the right trackl 


and my tho logically fic- 
describes the mob of 
as "thousands of Toronto 
citizens who share a common concern. . .a 11 but a handfull behaving with 
perfect decorum and patience". Now, there certainly were residents of 
Toronto there, and some undoubtedly were Canadian citizens, but to ig- 
nore the active, militant participation of so many American r-narcho- 
socialists, deserters and draft dodgers, from all over the USA and Can- 
ada, is probably a perfect example of Hnggartian fiction and distortion 
in low key, just as his suggestion that they behaved "with perfect de- 
corum and patien-^e" is a perfect example of Haggartian fiction with all 
the stops pulled out. Their "common concern", of course, can only be 
understood in terms of the tja^.^th Movement ' s description of itself as 
"a collection of anarchists, freaks',' students and Communists." Apart 
from the eleven antj-Comnntjists who were arrested, there remain roughly 
eighty of his alleged "Toronto citizens" who were taken into custody.

and with no news of what was happening outside, they began to question 
new arrivals. A friend of Grant's in one of the cells opposite the one 
which Grant now occupied (he was nn American draft dodger) led the in- 
terrogation: Where had he been "busted" (arrested); what had he been 
doing'at the time; what was going on in the streets. Somewhat dazed, 
Grant took some time to answer, end then managed to mumble little more 
than "I don't know" or "I don't remember". Later, when all the detain- 
ees had been released on their own recognizance (Sunday morning) other 
detainees in the "tank" at Division 52 reported that Grant had been 
brutally beaten and kicked by the police, which naturally elicited 
common human sympathy. It was even suggested that he was "high" at the 
time, either on "pot" (marijuana) or something more potent, which 
might have led him to mouth off at the police and to thus provoke 
their violent assault.

the Soviet clenched fist salute as they posed for the cam- 
press and their friends. Grant was approached by one anti- 
ellmate who, having heard of his sufferings at the hands of 
wished to offer him his sympathy. Grant was getting a lot 
that morning, and was exulting in his role of martyr, un- 
he was talking to an anti-Communist. "Haggart is going to

as assumed, of course, that this meant another Haggart

was to be "hoodlum members of the Edmund Burke Society",

mention. . . 

His most serious complaint against the police on May 9th was that 
"enforcement of the law appears to have varied greatly within a space 
of a few hundred feet" with the implication that the anti-Communists 
committed assault upon the "pe.nce demonstrators" and were indulged by 
the police. If th<^ enforcpn^nt of the low varied, it was in the other

On ilay 28th, Hagg-rt featured a column taken up by another "eyewit- 
ness", one Karl Purr, whose lengthy statement follows the opening asser- 
tion that the events described took plc?ce in front of the US Consulate 

on Kay 4th. Now, May 4th wa 

s the date of the Kent State University 

shootings, and' the demonstrations on University Lvenue began a lew day 

later, culainatine in the mass demonstration a 

nd riot of Lay 9th. 


which date similar activities were being carried on in most North Am- 
erican cities (as usual, factual accuracy is of little or no import- 
hat he claims to have 


mce to Haggart) . x^rr is obviously describing 
witnessed at the US Consulate on May 9th, on which occasion, it is re- 
ported, he was seen to be carrying an ,lmerican flag upside down, and 
to have been very busy as a kind of super-informer, attempting to per- 

suade the police to arrest anti-Communists, and 

omolr.ining that the 

police were not sufficiently respon 

sive to his pleas. Furr, who Is em- 

ployed as a "psychologist" by the Toronto Board o f Education , i± you 

please, c 

laims that Burkers attacked the Leninists, that he heard them 

plotting "to atta'^k the demonstrators 

", and similar Haggartian hogwash. 

Furr was also bending the ears of a couple of police Inspectors m 

Civic Square during the demonstration of May 31st. 

s well as getting 

sympathetic hearing from NDP Alderman Karl Jaffa ry, 

lotorious of late 

for his anti-Greek activities. To give the police their due, they do 

not seem to have taken this s 

toolDi.eeon too seriously, considering him 

more of a nuisance than anything else. For some reason o 

r other, Furr 

was to claim later that he was "satisfied" (perhaps someone had clued 
him in on how many anti-Comm.unists had actually been arrested on May 
>th?) and brought his contemptible, little campaign to a halt. It is 
upon such evidence as this, and from people such as these, it would

"Although the Constitution of the USSR guarantees freedom of 
conscience, and parents want and request that their children be ed- 
ucated in a religious spirit, priests and catechists, however, are 
forbidden to prepare children for their first Holy Communion. The 
Delegate for Religious Affairs allows the children to be examined 
only individually. Those who do not follow this unwritten law are 
severely punished. For instance, government officials have fined 

Rev. J_i_FabLianskas for teaching catechism; Rev. L. Q/lys and Rev.

Nevertheless, the fifty gave a smashing account of themselves when attacked by the 
braver elements among the five-thousand. 

The melee v/as ferocious. The police made indiscriminate arrests. Ten of 
our men were taken into custody - charged with causing a disturbance by fighting. 
Eighty-one leftists were also arrested.. Some were charged with assault; assaulting 
police; possession of a dangerous weapon etc. "While the charges against some of 
the Reds were more serious than those against our men, we feel that the comparatively 
large number of our people arrested - all defending themselves - indicates a certain 
hastiness and legal illiteracy on the part of the arresting officers. No crime is 
committed if one is defending oneself by fighting. The courts will vindicate us. To 
detain combatants would be understandable; but, to simply arrest people who were 
defending themselves, is to needlessly clutter the courts with ten trivial cases. 

V/hile much of the police restraint was admirable, v/e deplore the attitude that 
was apparent - that to appear even-handed ro the leftists , they had to arrest some 
Barkers, whether guilty or not. Such public-relations grovelling to the left looks 
shameful on the Toronto Police force we have supported in the past and will continue 
to support in the future.

I have just returned from a business trip to the U.K. where I lived up till 1947. 
The subsequent years of socialist government seem to have left the housing shortage 
as bad as it was when I left. In one big London daily paper there might be on a 
typical day, six or seven ads for "Apartments to rent" — so scarce is accommodation. 
Hotel rooms, too, are in short supply. Prices are about the same as in Canada (and 
of course wage-rates are much lower): a raging inflation is in progress, with the 
minimum fare on London's subways to be doubled shortly. The currency-change, 
with a new penny made equal to 2.4 old pence will, of course, tend to conceal from 
the unthinking majority, the extent of the inflation, by keeping prices numerically 
lower than they would have risen without the change. Violent crime is on the 
increase, encouraged by the abolition of the death-penalty. Not all is dark, 
however: the air of the capital has been purified by the abolition of the traditional 
domestic open fire, and by making industrial operations burn fuel cleanly and

Now don't get me wrong, we wouldn't say that the Federal Government 
distributes leftist literature, it just looks that way. 

If you wander into the Queen's Printer at Yonge and Shuter Street, you 
may chance to see these C.B.C. pocket books across the store from an entire shelf 
of publications glorifying the U.N. The saintly one, the late man of peaceful 
marches who left riots in his well publicized wake, can be read for $1 .50. The 
man - Martin Luther King; the book (pretentious in title) - Conscience For Change . 
Now, if your taste is more academic, you can read the leftish American critic, Paul 
Goodman, worrying his addled brain silly over The Moral Ambiguity of America . 
The text was first presented as a Massey Lecture in 1967. What the fat-cat Fords 
and Rockefellers are in terms of weakening the U.S., I guess the Massey's are to 
us. Maybe your taste is Canadian academic. The Queen's Printer has just the 
thing for you. Professor C.B. Macpherson, a long-time apologist for the U.S.S.R. 
and communism. Oh, you know him? RightJ The same good professor who has 
turned his home into a den for draft-dodgers. Yes, a few months ago, a U.S. 
traitor was arrested there on a drugs and weapons charge. Vv'ife, ex-president, and 
constant spokesman for Red-front, Voice of "Women. Yes, that's the same professor 
Macpherson. He wants to tell you about The Real World of Democracy . You can 
rest assured it won't look like the sort of world you and I could live in. 

Now, leftists may have the right to be heard, but I question whether their 
propaganda should be printed and distributed at tax-payers' expense. The political 
bias of the Queen's Printer is just a foretaste of Information Canada. 

One point that the Edmund Burke Society has stressed is that moral leader- 
ship is necessary if Western Civilization is to survive. The will to preserve and 
push forward must be evidenced by political, intellectual, business, and labour 
leaders. Instead, too often, we see these leaders express hatred for our traditions, 
disgust at the virtues that built our civilization, hatred for our friends, and sympathy 
for our avowed enemies. An excellent example of this sick leadership - this 
cancer at the top - appeared in a news item in Time (June 8, 1970, p. 32) 

"How does her father feel about her appearing nude in the San Francisco 
company of Oh.' Calcutta.' ? Well, said Louise Hatch, 24, the show is a "tongue- 
in-cheek parade of our s6xual hang-ups;" and after all, "he feels that people who 
object to the show for moral reasons, ought to object to things like the war in 
Vietnam instead." "I am not uptight about it at all," said her father. Episcopal 
Bishop Robert Hatch of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts. "I am glad she has 
a chance to express herself. . ,1 think it's a great idea to do your thing. I'm eager 
t or her to fulfill her life in whatever v/ay she likes . " 

It is time that organized religion returned to its former tradition of 
defending morals, not morons. It is typical of the jaded, moral paralytics of the 
liberal establishment that they cannot distinguish between sexual exhibitionism and 
human self-expression. Urinating, too, is a form of self-expression, but it is 
scarcely, (except for hippies and student protesters) a particularly acceptable form 
of public entertainment. But, the point is lost on the effete yahoos who are 
determined to preside over the destruction of our way of life and who look down with 
supercilious superiority and contempt, on anyone who stands for morality. 

The Edmund Burke Society has always sought broad-based support in the 
battle against communism and in the on-going efforts to preserve and build-up 
Western civilization. We were, therefore, somewhat disheartened at the following 
news item appearing in the Toronto Tel egram p. 82, (May 30, 1970). V\/rltten by staff 
reporter, John Marshall, and entitled, Jewis.h Leaders Wo n't Back Red Army Chorus 
Boycott, it said, in part: "World Jewish Congress leaders yesterday gave no 
support to a... group urging a boycott of Red Army Chorus performances at Maple 
Leaf Gardens June 4 to 7... At the conference after Vv'.J.C. sessions in Montreal, 
...they stressed t hat the V/.T.C. is non-political, and that this stance has in fact 
won it the support of variou s national Com munist organ izations which have protested 
Russia's treatment of its Jew ish cltlzgn^j " 



The Anti-Bolshevik Youth League (A.B.Y.L.) is an Edmonton-based 
group of young anti-communist freedom fighters. E.B.S. enjoys close 
co-operation and co-ordination with the efforts of this fine group. 
The following letter from their chairman, indicates their similarity 
to E.B.S. , and illustrates some of their many worthwhile activities 
over the past few months. 

F.Paul Fromm 


On Monday, May 13, 1970, the members of the Anti-Bolshevik Youth 
League went to the site of the Canadian Labour Congress convention 
and handed out 2 00 leaflets to the delegates, the attending newsmen 
and to observers. On one of the leaflets, the A.B.Y.L. accused the 
Edmonton and District Labour Council (host of the convention) of 
having pro-communists in its executive and also accused the Labour 
Council of becoming the tools of these pro-communist elements. The 
accusations were made in question form so as to avoid the possibi- 
lities of a law suit; even though our statements were backed up by 
newspaper clippings (Edm.onton Journal ) , copies of pro-communist pos- 
ters , pictures etc. A reporter of the Edmonton Journal confronted 
the president of the Labour Council, v/ho in turn, after 
gation" made the statement that there are no communists 
executive of the Labour Council. The accusation and the 
published in the Edm.onton Journal the naxt day. 

an "investi- 
in the 
denials were 

The other leaflet dealt mostly with the Cambodian situation, and 
it might have been partially responsible for changing the originally 
proposed one-sided anti-American C.L»C. resolution to one which 
called upon all sides to end the hostilities and to keep out of each 
other's territory in Cambodia, Laos and the Vietnam's, and the same 
resolution condemned the Soviet actions in Czechoslovakia and Eastern 
Europe , 

After the leaflets were passed out, we took one of our cardboard 
signs which had "Keep the Communists out of the Canadian Labour 
Congress ■■ written on it. By this time most of the delegates were 
inside the building but our token dem.onstration must havo riled up 
the members of the local Moscow-oriented Communist Party who were out 
there to hand out their papers to the arriving delegates, because 
they rushed up to the placard-carrying A.B.Y.L. member and tried to 
tear up the "offensive" sign. Their brave outburst might have been 
motivated by the fact that wo were outnumbered and most of our people 
at this function were girls. At the same time the Steel Workers from 
Sudbury came to our aid and the communists were persuaded in no 
uncertain terms to refrain from interfering with us. Inspired by our 
i»cwly found friends and infuriated by the threats of our opponents, 
we decided to come out every day with anti-communist signs and try 
to appeal to the delegates to keep communist infiltrated organi- 
zations ^ individuals and communist-inspired resolutions cut of the 
Canadian Labour Congress. Every morning throughout the week, the 
A.B.Y.L. picketers greeted the delegates and remained at the front of 
the hall until all the delegates were inside. Every morning the steel 
workers were out there with us and carrying our signs in turns. 
The overall reaction of the delegates was very good and remarks like 
"keep up the good work", "Finally the young people care", and "We are 
with you all the way" were quite common. Of course things were not 
entirely smooth. There were some heated arguments and a few of the 
"liberal"-minded delegates kept referring to us every morning as 
the representative's of the Nazis , Fascists , C.I. A,' John Birchers, and 
last but not least "those dirty Fascists from the Edm.und Burke Society' 
The radio stations interviewed us every day and we were continuously 
filmed and photographed. Our presence did embarass a few people, but 
the m.ost embarassv_d person must have been Larry Zolf of the C.B.C. 
who came to the vJest to do a docum^-ntary film on the Canadian Labour • 
Cangross Convention. One morning when Mr Zolf showed up with some of 
his associate's, the placard-carrying T^.B.Y.L. members greeted him 
with the shout "H.-ro" c.m ^-^ our here" and stood in line to shake his 

- 28 - 

hand. As t parting rera=irk, one A.B.Y.L, member whispered to him: "We 
are going to get those "commies" in Vietnam, wont we?" Unfortunately, 
he did not answer. 

At Thursday's sitting, the C.L.C. president in a speech struck cut 
against the "sinister forces" working inside the convention and 
labeled them as the rrembers and supporters of the Communist Party. The 
same day the delegates defeated a resolution which would have opened 
up the way for the (B.C.) United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union 
to join the C.L.C. (The f ishermens ' union for years had been openly 
saturated with communists). To show our approval, we changed our 
signs, and next day the placards read: "Keep up the good work", "The 
C.L.C. is moving in a good direction", and all the placards had large 
crossed out hammer and sickles painted on them. 

The previous day's events riled up the local Maoists to such an 
extent that at the same time when we arrived in the morning, the 
local Maoists' "political organizers" showed up with red flags and 
large pictures of Stalin and Mao, At our surprise, the Maoists at 
once attacked us and proceeded to tear up S'-me f cur posters. In a 
brief, but vicious fight, the Maoists received their share of the 
bruises and swollen eyes, but neither group suffered serious injury. 
The fight brought out of the building some of the early arriving 
delegates and the security guards of the Exhibition Gr^-unds who, in 
turn, separated the two groups. 'Ic stayed at the top of the stairs 
and the Maoists paraded below the stairs. By this time about 12 
city police men arrived and the news men from the radio and T,V. 
stations took up their position between the two opposing groups. The 
Maoists greeted the arriving delegates with shouts like "Death to all 
Fascists", "You dirty inperialist lackeys", and informed the husky 
workers that he reason why the police are here is to prc^tect the 
delegates from the "brave'' Ma'-^ists., The red flags, the pictures, and 
the smart alek remarks of the communists infuriated the majority of 
the delegates to such an extent that they refused to go into the 
meeting hall and circulated ar;;und the Maoists in the hope of getting 
a punch at them, but the police did not permit this. To drown out the 
shouts of the Rods, we started to yell the slogans, "Hitler is dead, 
Mao is alive", "Communism will be defeated", "Long live democracy". 
One of the Maoists advanced towards an A.B.Y.L. member and pushed 
the "little red book" in his face. The book went flying and the fight 
was on again. The police were doing their best to protect the reds 
from the crowd but the ungrateful Maoists turned on them and one of 
their female members struck a constable in the face with a flag pole 
and kicked one in the groin. In a few minutes, the speeding police 
cars took the offenders away, and quietly we continued cur march up 
and down in the front of the hall. 

There can be no doubt that the senseless Maoist attack on the 
police was entirely motivated by the presence of the TV film crews 
and ether news media. Attacks of this nature by Maoists start to 
become quite common all over Canada and it seems that they will go to 
any extent to get this type of cheap publicity. Vic can only hope that 
the local court will deal with the offenders in such a way that the 
Maoists will be discouraged forever from using and abusing the police 
in such a way. (The accused female who appeared in court on a public 
disturbance charge, only a week previous to the incident, is on a 
hunger strike at the Provincial jail. "1 refuse to eat in a lackey 
jail^', was her final statement.) 

The A.B.Y.L. gained a great deal of publicity and many new friends 
at the Canadian Labour Congress convention and porhapa our effort 
throughout the week will have some lasting result. It was also obser- 
ved throughout the week that while the C.L.C. is strongly anti-com- 
munist, it is clinging to the N.D.P. in a rather undesirable way. 
The N.D.P. influence is kept alive by Tommy Douglas personally, but 
when he resigns as the party leader, things might change a great deal. 
This is warranted by the fact that many C.L.C. members while willing 
to listen to Douglas, str'-ngly res«. nt the "Young Turk" of the N.D.P. 
As the influence of the N.D.Y. increases over the miin party the 
N.D.P. - C.L.C. rnl-ttions sh' uld grow cooler. Of curse this drift 
could be speeded up if th.^ -»n)-i-pink o1 .^Tn<^nt<= of the C.L.C. would

get ?- bit moro crganiz:o:d r.nd b^^came more vocal. They should be able 
to put up T program which will get rid of the N.D.P. with its phony 
nationalism and suicidal economic policy and at the same time still 
satisfy the majority of the unirn members. The C.L.C. v/ith its one 
and a half million members is a very strong political and economic 
power and, because of this, all furces must be utilized, to steer the 
Congress as far away from the undesirable N.D.P. - C.L.C. brother- 
hood as possible. This can be accomplished only from the inside and 
we hope that the "conservative" members of the C.L.C. will convince 
the main body soon th-'.t the N.D.P. stands for nothing else but cree- 
ping communism. It is not enough to be against the card-carrying 
communists. The fellow-travellers and sympathizers must be weeded out 
also if the C.L.C. h'^pes to stay a free organization.

Nays; Alderman Sewell - 1. 

Decided in the affirmative by a majority of 18. 

I'll let the communist Canadia.i Tribune (May 6,1970) continue 
the story: 

"In London, Ontario, on April 16, at a public meeting 
called by the Communist Party to mark the Lenin Cente- 
nary, a picket line mobilized from all parts of Ontario 
completely blocked the entrance to the library, subjec- 
ting anyone who wished to attend the meeting to abuse. 
The local police made no effort to remove the mob or 
force it to give proper sccess to a public meeting place. 
Inside the meeting members of the Edmund Burke Society 
were working hand-in-glove with a local TV station to 
disrupt the meeting and provide the news media with the 
kind of footage they wished to get to dov/ngrade the cele- 
bration. " 

Our example was followed by anti-communists in St .Catharines who 
protested to a local hotel that had rented out space for a Lenin 
evening - books, films, and propaganda by the local communist party. 
Th e hotel cancelled the engagement . 

As we promised, the time of complacency is over. Communism and thp 
wealthy, mush-boned liberal appeasers who aid it are going to be put 
on notice. And they are squirming. In a whining lament, creatively 
entitled Stop Jeo -Fancism Now , the communist Canadian Trib une (May 6) 
reported: "Ontario loader of the Communist Party vjiHiam Stewart, has 
written provincial Attorney General Arthur Wishart, demanding an end 
to the neo-fascist activities which have recently been taking place in 
Ontario . The Tribune- continues its hysteria against "right-wing 
intimidation", "Who is next? y^Jhat other groups may be barred from 
assembling and holding a public mooting because the ultra-right does 
not like them? Who are the forces behind these people that give them 
such influence ... the... thugs, the Edmund Burke Society, those indi- 
viduals who arc prepared to see Canada embroiled in a war with the 
Soviet Union... All of these forces and their anonymous backers will 
be greatly encouraged if cheir threatening tactics succeed," 

Those involved in permitting blatant Red propaganda at taxpayers' 
expense are also beginning to feel the wrath of an enraged citizenry, 
ihe Edm>und Burke Society realizes that without the acquiescence of 
arm-chair revolutionaries, Utopian dreamers, and unprincipled coward-^ 
the boys with the black flags and red arm-bands would be nov/hero . 
Atter our protest to City Hall over the Lenin exhibit the T.P .L. .^Jews , 

April 13/70 ("an information bulletin for staff and friends of the 

Toronto public libraries") must have sent chills of political invol- 
vement dovm the musty coreidors of books: "An exhibit of the literary 
works of Vladimir Lenin (don't forget propaganda posters and text 
- F.P.F.), to be held at the City Hall Branch, April 13 to 24, has 
causoa a flurry of excitem.-nt in Toronto's an ti -communist community. 
Dozens of phone calls have been made to Mr. Campbell, Mr.riallon and 
Mrs. Mam registering protests over the exhibit... Among the calls . 
was ^ one threatening the Chief Librarian's job ("you will lose the chair 
you're sitting on") and refusing, as a taxpayer, to "pay the wages of a 
communist sympathizer". 

Last, but by no means least, comes Toronto's veteran cop-hater and 
truth distorter. Elsewhere in this issue his vicious attacks on the 
E.B.S. after the May 9 demonstration are answered. The verbal simila- 
rity between Haggart's attacks and abuse in the Canadian Tribune is 
also noted. 


- 32 - 

Haggart tak^s particular delight in sniping at the ideal of law 
order. Decency and stability seem anathema to him. He is one c-' the 
greatest porverters in our public media. He has consistently used his 
plat-form to abuse the ideas of order and strong resistance to commu- 
nism^ To be singled out by his lying pen is indeed an honour; when 
the forces of evil throw in one of their "respectable" champions to 
attack us, we can rest assured that the Edmund Burke Society is hur- 
ting someone and hurting them bad. Good Work, E.B„S.;

Hardly had the echo of the May 9-th demonstration died down, when 
local Toronto groups of peace disturbers, police-haters, and window- 
breakers attempted to demonstrate again. The date was set for Sunday, 
May 31-st at Toronto City Hall. Timely assistance came from local 
Alderman Jaffary, who managed to squeeze out a permit from City Hall 
to use the loudspeakers; the reason -dvanced being th.?.t if Red agi- 
t-\tors had had loudspeakers to control the mob on May 9-th, no 
violence would have occured { : ) 

It so happened that May 31st had been previously scheduled by 
Ukrainians and other ethnic groups united in the local Anti-Bolshevik 
Bloc of Nations for their own protest against UNESCO's elevation 
Lenin as an "outstanding humanitarian" and for voicing a protest 
against denial of religious and civic freedoms in the Ukraine and 
other Russian colonies. 


and the 
the are 
three o 
the squ 

contrast of the tv/o demonstrations was enormous. Ukrainians 
ir A.B.N, associates, including a contingent of the E.B.S. 
with their own flags, marched from Trinity Park to Nathan 
s Square, starting after midday. The crowd was estimated in 
a of three to six thousand. The demonstration was orderly, 
s were brief and to the point. The demonstration ended around 
'clock. While many participants went hom.e, quite a number re- 
to confront the hairy bunch who were scheduled to arrive at 
are around 4 p.m.. 

Local radio commentators spread the news days in advance that the 
so-called Vietnam Mobilization Committee would train a force of parade 
marshals to 'protect the masses from Burkers.'^ Some Red leaders 
suggested that the Burkers were thoroughly scared and would not 
attempt to show up again. "Just lee them dare', they threatened, 

vJe did dare. When the motley mob of hairy specimens, estimated at 
from 400 to 1000, arrived at the City Hall Square shortly after 4 p.m. 
about 200 E.B.S. members awaited them at the platform. The latter was 
immediately ringed with a chain of ever-watchful police, and immedia- 
tely behind them - a double chain of Reds. One had to see this to 
appreciate our own potential. We have repeatedly said that we have 
never attempted violence, except in self-defence; and, we stuck to our 

Hardly had V.M.C. chairman Addison, opened his mouth to speak when 
a shrill volley of whistles (plastic ones previously secured) and boos 
rose m a wavy crescendo. The noise from the E.B.S. group was so 
continuously effective that it had drowned the abusive language of the 
Red speakers. ^'Is this the freedom of speech?" asked edgy "peaceniks". 
"You have no right to abuse freedom of speech to destroy all democra- 
tic freedoms"' E.B.S. members answered. 

In half an hour th.. fun was over. This was one of the most pitiful 
performances we have seen. If any moral is needed, the following may 
serve the purpose: the masters of violence and abuse are terribly 
inept at peaceful demonstrations. 

It is to bo noted that Toronto press gave a very scant coverage to 
an orderly and high-level A.B.u'. demonstration, while rewarding the 
scum. True to the tradition again.

affair. As the minimum action for each member and friend of the EDMUN': BURKE SOCIETY 
over the next few weeks, th.:.- Council urges oach person to write a letter of complaint 
Doth to your M.P. and to Hon. iillan, J. RacEachen, MB, Minister of M-anpowor and 
Immigration, Parliament Buildings, House of Commons, Ottawa. The same address will 
also roach your M.P. The articles in this issue provide much specific material from 
which you can formulate questions and arguments for your letters, Romombor, one of 
the few things the avorag. M.P. respects is the fear that ho will not bo re-elected. 
Let your MP's know that tho present immigration rolicies will not b.; supported by 
you and yours at the polls. Wherever possible, write on letter-head paper ( either 
that of your school or business, whore applicable.)

For this issue of 3TR.^iaHT LJjCj . we are abandoning our usual policy of list- 
ing chronologically the activities of the month. The various articles in this issue 
illustrate many of our recent activities. 

Our membership drive has been a groat success. Two full-page write-ups in- 
•June ( in the Saturday ST^Jl and TELEGR^'Jl ^. followed up with extensive advertizing in 
the personal sections of the Toronto papers has brought us many now members — most of 
them young. Our recruitment campaign has been proficiently managed by ^nv Chairman, 
D.C. Andrews, Much of our recent actvities have concentrated on re-organizing our 
members and assigning them to specific tasks to increase -ur general offectivonoss.

On June 22nd last, Toronto was graced with the presence of one 
uiore in the long line of foreign anarcho-sccialists who are permitted 
to enter our country to pursue their anti-American and anti-democratic 
activities on behalf of the military-political complex of the Social- 
-ist Camp. On this occasion, and with the apparent aoproval of the 
lederal administration of that notorious "Liberal", ' Pierre -Elliot- 1 
Trudeau ("There can be no national liberation for nu^bec without^^ 
r.oGialism"), the visitor was IVilliam Ku nstl er ("In^the U.S. we have 
resorted to murder on a national leveTto pTevent freedom of speech")

was sentenced to four years or so for contempt of court, a sentence 
which^he^ is^ now, ^ naturally , appealing. Pending the outcome of that

property has been wantonly destroyed, and the civic peace of the Amer- 
ican home front has been massively shattered as a result of thp sedit- 
ious activities of this Leninist Benedict Arnold, who has crossed 'mor- 
state lines to commit more crimes against the American people, probably, 
than all of the Chicago defendants put together. Why he is still at 
large and permitted to pursue his fifth column activities is one of 
those mysteries which has to do with the oossibly fatal "loss of nerve" 
of the ralmg establishment in the USA, which is now so morally debil- 
itated and psychologically paralyzed that it cannot summon up enough 

of stern action against such anarcho-socialj st

James Renwlck introduced Kunstler, and in terms so glo'-ing that 
we knew we were about to see an anarcho-socialist "star", and on stage 
he hounded, rather like Donald Novis making an entrance on stage at 
Shea's Hippodrome back in 1935" T except that Kunstler were black), to 
rather similar applause, though this was tc be a very different kind of 
vaudeville show. On arrival at centre stage, Kunstler saluted his local 
"constituency" with the Soviet clenched fist salute (eschewing the ac- 
companying slogan, "Red Front I", so popular in Spain back in the thirtir.; 
which salute was returned by most, but by nc means all, of the people 
in the hall. 

Kunstler had been speaking for about ten minutes or so, when he 
began to receive some mild heckling from exasperated members of the EBS 
group, which was probably a new experience for him. No doubt infoi-med 
by his buddies on the platform that EBS was present, he suddenly an- 
nounced, "I have something to say to the Edmund 3urke Society." Some- 
one from the anti-Communist section replied, "Right of reply! Right of 
replyl" and "Fiv- minut^sl Five minutes'.". Hands^'immediately flew up 
showing five fingers to symbolize the modest request of five minutes on 
microphone. This struck many people in the auditorium as a reasonable 
request, and intrigued with the idea of a possibly interesting little 
debate, they began encouraging the anti-Communists to go up to th^: stage 
One could sense the immediate subsiding of the tension in the hall, Kr. 
Kunstler then announced that he would iive the Edmund Burke Society... 
one minute. F. Paul Fro mm ("No crime is committed if one is defending 
oneself by fightinj:") one of the founders of EBS ^nd editor of this 
bulletin, prcr;;ptly moved to the platform, as the EBS spokesman, accom- 
panied by Allan .Overfie Id. .'is Paul arrived at the microphone, Kunstler 
handed h.ira a glass of wpter, and then proceeded to empty the remaining 
contents of the glass pitcher over Paul's head; the oictures of the 
dousing were widely published. Seconds later, Paul lay on the floor at 
the fTot of the steps leading up to the stage, at the head o: :he main 
aisle, unconscious, his face'swollen and bloodied. Since both Paul and 
Allan have charged Kunstler with assault (Allan attempted to come to 
Paul's assistance, was set upon by a number of anarcho-socialist goons, 
beaten, kicked, and dragged out of the Hall) we shall make no statements 
or express any opinions in this report re the guilt or innocence of the 


accused with re spec 

(Technically, the matter is sub judice, 
of the U.S.A. I) Suffice it to say that

stunned silence fell upon the 
glasses were retrieved, and he 

was carried out of the hall to the corridor to the hoots and jeers of 
the jubilant jackals who pretend to be sincerely interested in civil 
rights and free speech. 

Carried to the Security Cffice backstage, Paul was laid out on 
the floor in the corridor outside the office door, since we were not 
permitted to bring our injured and unconscious spokesman inside the of- 
fice, the door to which remained locked. Reluctantly, the security 
guards (two of them) were perauaded to let one EBS member into the of- 
fice to use their telephone to call for an ambulance. No ambulance ever 
arrived. There were no police present yet (they disclaimed jurisdiction 
on this "private property" until summoned by someone representing the 
University) and the University's security guard kept well out of harm's 
Way. Paul rventually recovered consciousness, and without our knowing 
the seriousness or the extent of his oossible injuries, he was taken 
to the hospital by EBS members.

right up to the recent murder of Daul«l Mitrione in Vruy:\ip.y, such dem- 
onstrations never cease to be required, it seerub. The bulk of the EBS 
continr-nt kept its seats, refusing to budge, refusing to be intimid- 
."-ited by the howling mob of pro-Soviet popromchiks now surronndinfc; it, 
some standing on their seats, as though in fear that the "Burkers" 
might evaporate before they t'ot p chrnce to see them or to tske their 
photographs . "Burkers Out I", "Burkers Outl", they shrieked, though few 
dared to take the lead in tangling with us. At one point, Don And rews 

demanded th^<t Kunstler aooloeize for wheat he had dont 

and he did so 

after h esita t ingly c onsidering th at hb mi^'ht h ave alienate d t he _s j/m - 
pa thy of, some of his fe'ns pres .-^nt, as a result of his con duct . Many of 
you, no doubt, heard this singular apology on the radio later that niiJiit, 
when an audio-tape of the meeting was broadcast, /ifter about fifteen 
minutes or so of this kind of thing, the EBS contingent got up and 
walked out, which led to s ome more "dialogue" (Kunst ler-style) in the 
exit ramp and the corridor which encircles Convocation Hall. No serious 
injuries were reported, though one EB3 member had to be treated for a 
bite in the leg (we kid you not) from a Communist cannibal (anti-tetanus 
shots?) . 

At the hospital, two plainclothesmen, accompanied by someone 
representing the sponsors of the Kunstler affair, informed us that Paul 
vi?ould have to see a Justice of the Peace on the following morning and 
swear out a warrant for Kunstler' s arrest (Support Your Local Taxpayer?), 
7i/e realized, of course, that Kunstler would be embarassed to -actually 
be arrested on charges of assault (fancy actuclly arresting 7/illiara 
Kunstler for anythingl) and that he would waste no time scurrying to 
the relative safety of the USfi, pronto. Re did, and promptly held a 
press conference in Mew York the next morning denying the charges, and 
denying that he had fled the country to avoid arrest. Despite the mis- 
leading' "information" of the detectives, Paul in fact swore out his 
warrant Immediately upon his release from the hospital that night, and 
both warrants would be effective the noment Kunstler set foot In our 
country again (,^t lepst, that is the normal procedure). 

There was no doubt in our minds but that Kunstler' s local hosts 
had advised him to get out of the country before having to face the 
ignominy of arrest, just as he was advised, Kunstler told his audience 
on ..ugust 9th ?t the Ontario College of Education, by "legal friends" 
in the U3 "to stay in the US until"" the Toronto incident died down" 
(Cf. Frank Etherin gton' s renort in the. TELSGRmV: , August 10, 1970). 
On June 25th.^ the D.'.ILY STAR reported that Clayton Ruby ("I believe it 
intellectually"), the l^gal demon of Rochdale College, announced that 
"thirty lawyers have offered to defend Chicago Seven lawyer William 
Kunstler on assault charges stemming from a dispute with Edmund Burke 
Society ^ members", among whom were V/alter Ta ma p l ls.kl , Dean of the 

" ~ " " ^bam 'Parker , P aul '.Ve. iler , 


University of VJln dsor Law School . Professors Grab am"'Pa 

and Steph en Bo r ins of Os^roode Ha ll Law School , and, jl' course, 

great civiT~libe rtarian. . .James Renwick. 

The Leninists were prompt to react in another direction. In a 
matter of hours following the "incident", the United Press Inte rnet l:nr.l 
had a story out on its wires in which the events at Convocation Hall 
on June 21st were simply igniired in favour of a piece of Crwellian 
fiction worthy of Ron Hae-gart. This was the story which most of the 
umerican papers got TIrst, though subsequent "follow up" stories (not 
from TJPI) tended to be more accurate, lipi reported that Kunstler had 
been "drowned out by shouts of about 30 members of the rightist Edmund 
Burke Society"; that he was "blocked in his attempts to speak" (sicl), 
and that he was "beaten and knocked down by a group o£ rightwingers"; 
Now this is utterly delightful, spun from the dreams of anti-Communist 
militants; unfortunately, it didn't happenl So false was this story, 
that no Toronto paper dared carry it, since they were too close to the 
scene to be taken in by its palpable falsehood. Obviously, there is a 
branch office of Orwell's "Ministry of Truth" operating in the UPI, 
one more indication of how the news media are cluttered with Leninist 
liars and apologists. 'Who could believe that over nine hundred Red 
fanatics would just sit there and oermit a handful o£ anti-Communists 
to thus manhandle their hero? 'Vhat contempt the UPl must have for the 
public, what morons newspaper editors must think their readers to be, 
to expect them to accept such Communist claptrap as "news" and factual 
report Ingi 

- 11 - 


Than, around the -nd of July, the word wa3 cut that Kunstler 
was to play return engagement, to face the chari^es, and to address a 
so-called memorial rally for the victims of the tragedy of Hiroshima 
(the anniversary of which has become a standard date in the Conraunist 
calendar for c regular dose of cynical Yankee-baitin?) . We vondered whnh 
would happen. Would the police serve the warrants? iVere the Lenln.ishs 
planning another riot, using the arrest of Kunstler as an excus*:? 
■jVould the corrupt, conciliationist estacllshment in this community 
allow him to speak again, and a-ain to use tax-supported facilities? 
In the event, Kunstler '.vas not arrested on arrival, but was allowed to 
present himself at B/Ietrooolitan Police Headquarters, "by arrangement 
with the police" (Gf. despatch in the GLOBE & lu^IL, August 10, 1970), 
in the company of his legal counsel, Clayton Ruby, and was immediately 
released. That night he spoke to about four or five hundred oeocle at 
the Ontario College of Education, duly protected by a lartre squad of 
storm troopers sporting pink armbands (Pink Panthers?). Once more he

Clearly, /.merica is suffering from an overdose of ill-conceived "free- 
dom of speech", or how else explain the irrational phenomenon of i.'r. 
William Kunstler? 7/ith characteristic hypocrisy, oS course, no mention 
was made of the brutal crushing of free soeech in the Sovist Union and 
throughout the slave states of the Socialist Camp. Iv;r. Kunstler had no- 
thing to say about Daniel li'itrione • s right to live, let alone to speak, 
nothing to say ^bout the savage persecution of 7;riters and other in- 
tellectuals in Soviet Russia, about General Grigoryenko and other im- 
prisoned Russian dissidents, about Josef Brodsky, the Russian Jewish 
poet who disappeared in the concentration camp'at Archangelsk a few 
years ago, about Ladarne Ivinskaya, Boris Pas cernak's secretary, who 
was arrested immediately upon the author's death, and who has never 
been seen since, or about the bloody suppression of all dissent, real 
or suspected, intellectual, religious, and cultural, in Soviet-occupied 
Cuba, Ukraine, Armenia, etc. Curiously, on the other hand, at his press 
conference on th^ following Monday, he did defend Hitler's rieht to in- 
cite Judeophobia (which should give ^drien /ircand and John Seattle a 
lift) though one looks in vain for any mention of this in~the oress

The next day, Monday, Kunstler appeared before a magistrate,

the matter seems to rett. 


In the meantime, of course, Kunstler remains at large in the US, 
free to carry on his fifth column activities without let or hindrance. 
His doctrine is hatred, and applied violence to wreck the .imerican home 
front in every conceivably ocssiblo way, the smashing of ••;estern unity 
and collective security, preparatory to anarcho-socialist conquest. 
His fascism is traditionally nihilist. "We can achieve nothine", Lenin 
once said, "unless we use terror." Somewhat later, Adolf Hitler said 
that "Violence is the father of all thintrs". New Kunstler tells us that 
"There are times when I think force and violence are progenitors of 
social good." Thus the perennial Leninist ethos, expressed and applied 
at such a terrible cost to humanity by both the anarchc-socialists ■^^nd 
the Hitlerites, continues to be preached with Impunity, to the peril 
of peace and democracy, in our coumunitits, and with the supine ac- 
quiescence of our public and juridical authorities. And then they won- 
der why we get a little hot under the collar. ..I

iNlSarly a h'undrod and twonty years ago, tho Rov, W, Gresloy, wroto nov-.-la 
about tho decline of Western morality and civilization in England and noted that 
much of the decline is "fostered by a corrupt and vonal press, l^j the- haran^os 
of tho infidel locturur, and tho false liboral.,," Then, he was called an- "iiil" id- 
ol locturor"; today, more often, ho is known as an "outside agitator." Press ridi- 
fBila has caused tho term to lose much of its impact. However, tho events of Juno 
22 gave a pointed illustration of just what "outride agitator" moans. 

The old saying, " here today and gone tomorrow", forms an essential part 
of the dosoripti.nn of travelling merchants of revolution, like William Kunstlor, 
Here today for an inflammatory speech which enflamcs the volatile leftist rcvo- 
luti.r.narics5 and gone tomorrow, when the fire he has spread erupts into devasta- 
tion and people arc injured and property destroyed. WATIONAL REVIEW details tho 
information, which our Minister of Immigrationri chose to ignore, when we urged 
him to prevent Kunstler"s initial trip to Canada on Juno 22:" The first Columbia 
riot came, on April 8, immediately after a speech by Chicago Soven lawyer Wmiim 
Kionstlor. Since tho Chicago verdict, Kunstler has criss-crossed the country, 
leaving in his wake bombed and bumod-out buildings, injured policemen and stu- 
dents. Kunstlor understands the kids. He spoke to tho-m at Northwosternj .after 
tho speech, they rioted. Ho spoke to them at tho lAiiv-.rsity of Illinois, after 
the speech, they rioted. He spoke to them at the University of Buffalo 5 after the 
speech, they rioted. He spoke to thrm in Santa Barbara; after tho speech, they 
rioted,.,, At Santa Barbara full-fledged guerrilla warfare broke out once again,. 
Kevin Moran-, a USCB student, was stoned and then killed in a cross-fire when 
he tried to extinguish a I-lolotov cocktail hurled by militants at the newly rdbuilt 
Bank of ilmerica building. Our tape-rocorHing of Kunstlor' s spuoch here, in Toronto 
on August 9, contains those comments I " I do think there are times when force 
and violence are a progenitor of the social good, even though they cause proper- 
ty dam.agc,.,. I am supposed to bo a violent speaker.,,. In ray wake are supposed 
to be a line of burning Banks of /jnerica ( tremendous applause) ,,,. that's all 
I hoar is broken windows and burning banks ,,, and some water to cool off Mr. 
Fromm ( applause)." The formal disclaimer of agitation is thore, but his audience 
obviously knows bottorj 

Perhaps, a brief look at some of the past activities and associations of 
William Kunstler, might help sketch out the portrait of an outside agitator, 
Kunstler styles himself as the "people's lawyer." Now, lest you imagine that 
by the "people" Mr, Kunstler refers to such oppressed Americans as Otto Otepka; 
merchants whose stores are bombed or blackmailed by the black Panthers; ir 
policemen-, who are gunned down by hoodlum subversives, let me explain just 
who the "people" are. PXAYBOY magazine, in its February 1970 issue, approvingly 
portrays Mr, Kunstler as the man who defended Martin Luther King arrd such 
black revolutionaries as Stokely Carmichael and H. Rap Brown. As during both 
his speeches in Toronto, Kunstler conrstantly stirs up the spectre of Wazisnr 
with which to terrify and enflame the paranoid left. Playboy quotes Kunstler: 

Although it is not dearly in focus yet, the shadow of the swastika is visi- 
ble in America today." Not the way we read iti All we've seen lately is the 
clenched-fist salute that Kunstler used in Toronto and myriad banners with 
tho inverted and broken Christian^ cross ( the so-callefl peace symbol); but, 
we have not seen any swastikas. Bow, while the great civil libertarian, ( to 
rase the words of James Renwick of the Ontario N.D.P.) is blathering on about 
tho throat of the swastika, we might note that " Baltimore cops allege Panthers 
killed a suspected police informer; 18 persons have been charged, some are in 
j^^l* Sought, .a mong others, are Arthur Turco, Jr.. a white attorney from IJYC 
and official of t he now-defunct Patr iotic gart y. and form er associate of attor- 
ney William Kunstler. " ( COMBAT . July 1, 19701 

The CONGRESSIONAL RECORD ( August 18, I968) reports a speech by the Hon. 
William M. T&ck, Democrat from Virginia. Congressman Tuck's speech outlines 
Kunstler 's extensive record as a defender of communists ~ a record going back 
to the early 1950 's, " He has taken a lead in the movement for the pardon and 
the release of the notorious conspirator and enemy of .Unorica, Morton Sobell, 
who is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence for conspiracy to commit 
espionage in 1951 in connection with tho Rosenborg case," Congressman Tuck goes 
on to note:" This same Kunstler was the sponsor of the rally to abolish the 
Committee on Ifri-American Activities of the House of Representatives held in 
New York City on April 21, I96I, Carl Braden and Frank" Wilkinson wr-re .-unong 
the contemtibl> speakers at this rally. Both of them were about to begin ser«s. 
vin^ sentencros in prison for contempt of the Congress of tho (ftiited States, ox- 
tending from their refusO to answer whether or not thoy wore or had been mem- 
bers of tho communist party. Another speaker at the meeting was Pote Soeger, 
who had just been sentenced to a year in prison for the same reasons,.,, I have

a pardon for Braden, he (Kunstlor) attended a reetDption in New lork in hone

of this convicted scoundrel*" 


Kunstler's long affiliation with coimunist and revolutionary causes ^nO. 
his decision to defend exclusively clionts of this ilk, should call into savoro 
question: his claim to being a civil libBrtarian, Kunstlor rocontly proclaimed: 
" I only defend those whose goals I share. I'm not a lawyer for hire. I only 
defend those I love.** Like communist Carl Bradon and violent ruvolutinnarios liko 
H. Rap Brown and Stokoly Carmichael? Kunstlor's- unprofessional arrogance r-.i-.. i 
him a rebuke from the .\MERIC;tN BAR ASSOCIATION JOURM.'il ! " As a prof nf^sion- and 
individually, we know that our ideal is to providfe competent c unsel f^r any 
pers->n with a legitimate cause." 

Kunstler's conduct has made him a blot on the legal profassinnr. What are 
his chances of being disbarred? Not very good? Ihe EDMUND BURKE SOCIIirx contem- 
plated legal action agiinst Kunstlor in the U.S., as well as in Canada. We sought 
out the advice of an activist and prominent iunerican conservative gr^up, which 
replied:" Of course, whatever action you take will be your decision to make. But, 
we frankly feel that in view of the " protection" Kunstler is now receiving, you 
will be dissipating a lot of time and money ►" The liborql EstabllshMtont of _ 
both Canada and the United States is paralyzed by its cowardice and mas.-ehism; 
and, in the former nation-, has neitherr the courage or the justias to keep Kunst- 
ler out; and, in the latter nation, lacks the courage and justice to disbarr hm 
for his unprofessional activities and to jail him for incitement to riot.

The various aspects -.f the Kunstler affairod are covered extensively else- 
whoi-« -i.j, U-iis issue of STRAIGHT TiilJCJ Among others things, the Kunstler affair 
has made the E.B.S. far more aware of the unmanly permissiveness and lethargicr 
cowardice that char,HcLerizes our Department of Manpower and Immigration. Before 
Kni.sMor o.-imo to Canada, the EDMUND BURKE SOCIiTT sent a formal documented complaint 
to itllan J, RaoKnnh.jBv the Minister of Manpjwetr and Immigration, protesting that 
ii'nustler was a violonco-prone demagogue and a man who had successfully incited 
many riots in the U^., and, as such, h^d no place here. In essence, ignoring all 
our argiomonts about the potential for violence and mayhem that Kunstler brought 
with him, the Minister replied:" I might add, that the Government's poliov is to 
.allow J,he_, ad mission- of persons of a controversial nature wher they are c oming f^v- 
ward to address meetings ani gatherings in this. cou ntr'/- and where they have bedn 
invited to do so by reputable organiz ations. " The entire issue is not treatdd 
as if violence, riot, assault, or property damage was being discussed. The minister 
is speaking from a Utopian academic ivory tower and is sayings" Now chaps, even thou 
-gh you don't agree with what this other chap is saying, he still deserves his 
right to speak in our common room, over a glass of sh^^rry." 

Even taking MArflachon's argument at face value is utterly false, at least 
in the case of William Kunstler. One of the main- sponsors and organizers of both 
Kionstler appearances , and the group that provided the bully-boys ( complete with 
armbands) wgs the May I* Movement — a group which, by no trick of the imagination, 
could be considered " reputable." Ihe May ^ Movement was, in large measure, res- 
ponsible for the violence in the riot of May 9, in Tor-jnto. They are an admittedly- 
communist and re-volutionary group, Thioy preaoh violence. Prior to the May 9th riot, 
they distributed a pamphlet, which read in part:" ( Wo) are a collection of anar- 
chists, freaks, students, and communists," This, remember, is a self-description, 
not the jaundiced view of some opponent. On June 27, the May ^ Movement initiated 
repeated attempts to crash a rock festival at tht C.W.E. Twenty-nine persons wore 
arrested. Several policemenit wore hospit-'liasod. The depravity and violence of this 
collection of drug freaks is illustrated by the following vomit from l-^M ( volume 
1, number 1), their group smut sheet. The quote is characteristic of the paper:" 
May 9th sot a lot of things straight. Wo showed ourselves and many other people 
who are f ^-od every d^^y by tho system, that thel people of EngliSih Canada refuse to 
be kept down and silent. Wo have begun to fight back,... Bef.^ro the 9th some people 
ftere even saying that the Canadian police were bettor tharr tho nmerikan ( sic) 
pigs. Now we know butter -- a pig is a pig is a pig," Is -this to be considered tho 
utterance of a "reputable group?" In tho letter montiinod oTrlior, in which tho 
May il- Movement introduced itself and called for a demonstration at the U,S, Consu- 
late ( May 9)» the following appoari;d:" Wo announce the death of the silent majori- 
ty. You are cordially in-vitod to tho funeral wake, with us. Riots, macings, clubb- 
ings, killings, and a splendid time is guarnntced for all,,,. M^^-M opposes violence 
initiated against people but wo support violtmce against private corporate property* 
tho banks, tho trusts, and the consulate.... Join the May ^th Movement. End impori-il- 
ism and repression," Such statements, when matched with violent actions ( as they 

subsoquontly wore) makas us wonder why this group has not boon Gh.-irgod with ceditinn. 
Dut, even that aside, such statements disqualify tho May ^ Movemont from -^ny pro- 
tences of being a reputable group. 

And what says Mr, MacEachen to all this| " I note that you do not agree 
that the sponsors of the meeting which Mr, Kun-stler addressed could bo regarded 
as reputable. That is, of course, a matter of opinion. When he c-ame to Canada wo had 
no reason to question the reputation of the sposoring organizations," Back to our 
ivory tower academic debate. The evidence just laid out is a proety damning indict- 
ment of the May ^4- Movement, Tho information contained therein is readily availatalr.. 
The_ evidence is fac t, not opinion . If there is any matter of opinion, it i3 Mr, 
MacEachen 's incredible but implicit statement that the May 4 Mov mont is a '•reputa- 
ble" group. It is a matter of considerable concern that anyone in the Govr.mmont of 
Canada could seriously hold suchx a naive -ind dangc-rous opinion. Now granted that 
tho mails are slow and granted that the bureaucrats in Ottawa arc- hopelessly i3ol,-U-...ri 
from reality, but the minister's claim that when Kunstler came to Canada, he had 
no reason to question the reputation of 'the sponsoring groups. Doesn't ho read the 
newspapers? Doesn't the R.C.M.P, provide him with intelligence reports. The distinct 
impression emerges that tho Minister neither knew nor cared who sponsored William 
KunsHer — that the real policy of the Department df Iminigration is anything ,;oes . 

But the rot goes deeper. On- May 22, I969, MacEachen proclaimed a " liberal- 
ization" of the regulations governing the odmissiofr of U.S. draft-dodgers and deser- 
ters injto Canada, " If a serviceman from another country meets our immigration 
criteria, ho will not be turned down because he is still in the active service of 
his country.,.. Our basic position is that the question of an individual's membership 
of potential membership in- the armed serxnLces of his own country is a matter to bo 
settled between the individual and his governmont, and is not a matter in which we 
should become involved." Throughout his statement MacEachen resolutely refuses to 
make any distinction between just what armed service the potential immigrant is 
deserting. The inability to m,ake moral decisions, to distinguish right from wrong, 
to advocate anything but tho bankruptcy of tho " do-yo ur-own- thing" 'non--morality, 
is a mark dif the decadence and rot that has set in- at the top of our sociv.-ty, Mac- 
Eachen seems unable to distinguish a deserter from the Russian Army from- a traitor 
from our ally's army ( th . U.S.), This permissive policy is one of non-co-operation 
with our ally and military protector, th.. United States, 

Canada is in the process of the wholesale importation of revolutionaries 
and violent trouble-makers, chiefly from the IMited States, There is no mystery 
about the fact that much of the rise in- drug abuse and in violent leftist politics 
m the big cities of Canada is due to the influence and participation -f American 
draft-dodgers, deserters, and embittered ma.lcont^nts. To continue to lot these sorts 
mis criminal, Ann Briggs, 21, is a local Maoist and an American citizen. She has- 
twice boon convicted of causing a disturbance ( most recently on- August 13). She 
has also been convicted of common assault, arising out of a ono-woman "peoples' 
strike" that she tried to foment at the Toronto Hospital For Sick Childron. She 
cursed and abused the judge so wildly that he had her committod for a psychiatric 
examination. Found sane, but disturbed, she was convicted of the charge. BoM^ 
Clonoy fined her $60.00 for causing a disturbance:" The heavier fine was imposed 
on Miss Briggs, a U.S. citizen, because of previous convictions for causing a dis- 
turbance and common assault." ( GLOBE ;j^D MilH, August 14, I970, p. 5) This is ^ 
clear-cut case of a vie lone o-p rone, foreign revolutionary, that has been convicted 
of ,t;hree crimes before Canadian courts. When will she bo deported??? A recent 
article by Ross Munro, in the GLOBE AMD MAIL , discussed the membership and activities 
of the Canadian Maoists. Munro noted that a large percentoage of their membership 
were Indian or Pakistani. How did these people get into Canada? When they are con- 
victed of criminal acts, why ar.n't they deported? 

C&i Saturday, August I5, there was a riot at Rochd.alo College over an R.C.M.P. 
djrug raid. Loc-^1 police were attacked by the hairy, drug-sodden hordes. A Rochdale 
resident told the GLOBE /iND M..IL ( August 17, p. 5):" I think the ones who started 
this were chiofly Americans..., ilmericans are far more activist. Canadians do not 
socm to do much." Tho GLOBE article went on to note that a major c:iusc of the 
trouble was tho presence of a large number of iimerican transients on their way back 
from tho STRi\WB.'-RRY FIELDS rock-pot-nudity festival of the previous weekend. Again, 
how did so many undesifcables enter Canada? 

Tho cartoons roproducod on the front page of this issue of STRAIGHT TALKi 
comt^ from- publications of tho Black Panth.jr Party. On August 10 and 11 the Toronto 
newspapers carried tho announcopont that Black Panther Party loader and self- 
styled Minister of Dofonce, Huey Newton, will visit Toronto for a hatu-in at the 
University of Toronto, October 16-18. So far wo havo had no reply from Mr. MacEach- 
to our question whether this horaocidal enemy of Western Civiliantion will bo allow- 
ed into Canada* Why not write yourself and ask him? Tho cartoons illustrate tho 
daric, deranged hatred that apologizes for a platform for tho murdering band of 
psycopaths that styles itsolfl as the Black Panther Party, Newton's conviction 
for manslaughtor in tho murder of a policoman was recently over-ruled by the 
California Supremo Court, on a technicality. A new trial on the same charge will

7Jithin a half hour of Paul's being injured, kl Over fie Id and I 
were at 52 Division where Al attempted t^ lay a charge of common as- 
sault against Kunstler. The police were not of much use to us; they 
cannot act without .•= •■: = rrant, apparently, and to obtain a warrant, one 
must see a Justice of the Peace. Ales, in blind disregard of the fact 
that crimes are committed twenty-four hours a ciay. Judges only work 
during "business hours". So much for that. As we angrily predicted to 
the police, Kunstler was not going tc wait around to be arrested, and 
he was safely in the US before we could get a warrant, fit 3 A.M. on the 
23rd (seven hours after he was assaulted and three hours after he was 
released from hospital), Paul mana^-ed to get a warrant issued after 
seeing the Night Bail Judge (the city s one and onlyl) who, we had the 
good luck to discover, was to be at 52 Division at that time. Some six 
hours after that, M managed to swear out his complaint at Old City Hall 
Not that it made much difference, as Kunstler had fled home via Malton

Kunstler is currently app-^aling jail s-^-ntenccs totalling four 
years and thirteen days for contempt of court, arising from his gross- 
ly animalist behaviour in the course of the trial of the "Chicago 7". 

The next day, June 23rd, this reoorter, as EBS representative, 
went first to call upon th^- Public Relations Dopt. at Metro Police 
headquarters to express our dissatisfaction with their performance in 
connection with 1' affair e Kunst ler, and to raise the far more serious 
problem of this ridiculous "campus immunity" and its inevitable abuse. 
Later I called upon the TJS Consulate on University Avenue (at 2 P.M.), 
and was agreeably surprised to discover that the press conference we 
had called in front of the Consulate for 2.10 P.M. had attracted some 
fifteen representatives of tht news media. First, however, I went in- 
side to advise the .Americans of our displeasure at their having allowed 
a long-time agitator such as Kunstler to leave the US to commit crimes 
en the territory of our country. Mr. C-e or^ ve Luck ett of the Consular 
staff, together with another gentleman with "ccp" written all over him, 
listened to what we had to say with diplomatic courtesy. Cur protest 
was lodged in a mild and friendly manner, on the whole, though it did 
include a firm and explicit expression of our desire that the US gov- 
ernment keep Its "garbage" on its :iwn "side :>£ the border". A very 
satisfactory "meeting of minds" I thought, until I read what f'r. Luck- 
ett later told the press: thc'.t the decision to permit Kunstler to 
come here was made by the US Deg-rtment of Justice, and as the Consul- 
ate is run by the US Do p a r t m ta n t'^ .-' T~5"£ ate , it Had nothing to do vith hi:::^ 
all together a nice bit of dlplo'^.-tic bucK-passing. However, the US 
Consulates represents the US Governm-nt in this city, and the Department 
of Justice lb just that, a Department ,. ..^f the US Government. 

Th'- incident itself, rapid cont-ict with the press immediately 
after, and our press conference at the VZ C.msulate on the following 
day resulted in extensive coverage all ever Canac'.a, the States, and

seeas to have a very selective application... 

The follovvine aorning, Monday, this -/riter, alone v;ith four

in thirty seconds. ?ife then prepared ourselves for IJr. Kunstler' s preso

Armed with copies of our own press release callin.- attention to Jlr.

we arrived in the looby :f the 7/estbury at I.30 p.u., nabbed tht press 
as they arrived and held our own press conference a good twenty minutos 
before sonieone suggested that we, too, should come alonr' and listen to 
what Kunstler had to say. 7ife decided to do so, and to put in an appear- 
ance as observers. However, as it transpired, Mr. Kunstler invited us 
to ask him questions, and we asked him so awkward ones, which, along 
with his self-incriminating answers, were never nublished. '//e were so 
successfully conducting ourselves and scoring ooints at'ainst Kunstler 
that the press decided to black out our press conference and our oart- 
icipation in Kunstler' 3 (with the exception of the TELEGR/Ji:, which 
mentioned that we "-ere there). The radio stations must have had a

Nevertheless, Mr. Kunstler ,-:ot something less than an enthus- 
iastic response from the editorial writers. On August 12th, the 
TELEGPuUi: carried an editorial on "THE LBalTS OP ?REE SrEECH" roundly 
condemning Kunstler, and the D.ilLY STAR (wonder of wonders) fired an 
editorial dart in his direction. On the same day, TELEGRai columnist 
Pennis Jraithwaite ran a column entitled, "I'iilLLirJ.I KUNSTLER FLE;i3E GO 
HOLE", in which ne suggested that EBS should droa the charges a^rainst 
Kunstler "thereby sparing us another visit of his in October." The 
following day three members of the Council eranted a tiio , hour inter- 
view to a reporter from United Press International; if anythin.: of this 
gets cut on their wire, it will reach over thre... thousand news'outlets 
in the US, which should help to get us better known south of the bor-er 


Now we must wait until October, when the issue will be decided 
and for all. Or will it?
